The list isn't sorted

Hi !

I am working on this assignment and there seems to be a problem because the slots of the SortedInventory don't get updated when I call the sort function.

Any help is appreciated !

Thanks !

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 = self.slots.sort()

My mistake

There was no need for

          self.slots =

The correct answer was :

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

Congratulations on resolving your own issue! :+1:

And for future reference, another solution (but not quite as good) would have been:

        self.slots = self.slots.sorted()

Great! Now override the add_item method. Use super() in it to make sure the item still gets added to the list.

Huh? That was already done in the previous step.
