Summary function is not printing

The program runs questions but at the end does not print the summary.

import datetime import random

from questions import Add, Multiply

class Quiz: questions = [] answers = []

def __init__(self):
    question_types = (Add, Multiply)
    for _ in range(10):
        num1 = random.randint(1, 10)
        num2 = random.randint(1,10)
        question = random.choice(question_types)(num1, num2)
        self.questions.append(question)


def take_quiz(self):
    self.start_time = datetime.datetime.now()
    for question in self.questions:
        self.answers.append(self.ask(question))
    else:
        self.end_time = datetime.datetime.now()
    return self.summary


def ask(self, question):
    correct = False
    question_start = datetime.datetime.now()
    answer = input (question.text +' = ')
    if answer == str(question.answer):
        correct = True
    question_end = datetime.datetime.now()
    return correct, question_end - question_start


def total_correct(self):
    total = 0
    for answer in self.answers:
        if answer[0]:
            total += 1
    return total


def summary(self):
    print("You got {} out of {} right".format(
            self.total_correct(), len(self.questions)
        ))
    print("It took you {} seconds total".format(
            (self.edn_time - self.start_time).seconds
        ))

Hi there, Tucker Fischer! It looks like you forgot the parentheses where you are calling the summary method. Right now it's returning a reference to the method instead of returning what is returned by running the method. Inside your take_quiz method you have:

return self.summary # this references the method

But you meant:

return self.summary() # this calls/executes the method

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
