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

Up to this point, the code is effectively just calling the parent method of the same name. The power will come in the next step of the tasks where you will modify the behavior of the parent method. So hang in there!

Also, you are missing the self parameter in the method you added.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
