Super Override

Hi,

I am having issues with this exercise. In challenge task 2/3 I am requested to override the add item method of the Inventory class in thee 'SortedInventory' class.

I do not see where, I am going wrong in this example.

As specified in the exercise specification, I have created the 'add_item' method in in the 'SortedInventorty' class, and added a super variable to the method.

I have already tried but, in this instance do I need to refer to the Inventory's 'add_item' method in the following manner?

super().Inventory.add_item() super().self.add_item()

My thinking is no because Inventory class is already being passed through in the 'SortedInventory' Class call.

Kindly assist.

inventory.py
class Inventory:
    def __init__(self):
        self.slots = []

    def add_item(self, item):
        self.slots.append(item)

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item):
        super().add_item(item):
            self.slots.append(item)

You just have one line too many. Remove the last line and you should have it.

class SortedInventory(Inventory):
    def add_item(self, item):
        super().add_item(item)

Hope this helps.
