The answer is str.rjust

Note some reported the quiz had a grading glitch where it was not taking the correct answer.

You can use help() to peruse through the docstrings of functions or methods. If you put in no arguments, it will start an interactive help system. If you put in a string, it will search for the string and return the aforementioned docstring content of the module, function, class, method, etc. For example, if you wanted help on just the str class, you could type in help(str) and it would give you a lengthy description of the str class and associated methods. You can chain methods together like str.format to get assistance with the string formatter.

Post back if you are still stuck.

Happy coding,
