Hi Cal,

So when you call super().someMethod, you're already doing everything in the superclass's someMethod method. There's no need to duplicate code already in the superclass's method. In this case, you're adding the item twice! If you delete the line that is already covered by super(), you'll pass.

Cheers :beers:


Thank you very much
