Trailing whitespace error?

This is the first exercise of the 'Write Better Python' course. We have to correct the indentation, & I get returned the error 'Bummer! Your file has 1 error(s) on line(s) 13: trailing whitespace.' I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Can someone help me?

starter.py
def first_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


def second_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


class MyClass:
    args = [1, 2, 3]

    def class_func(self):
        return self.args

Hey George! Your super close. The issue, and why your not passing is because you have left a whitespace after your final return self.args. After fixing that, add another empty line at the bottom that is indented all the way. Youll pass after that. Hope this helps!
