Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Membership

Trouble getting code correct in python basics,

In the exercises on If , Else, and in , I'm trying to return True or false values for the result, whatever way i enter it, it keeps returning bummer, need help at it a long time now

membership.py
store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
time = 10
if time in store_hours:
   time = True
else:
  time = False

you're pretty close there's just one thing that's off. you're trying to set kenneth's variable 'time' to a boolean when you should be looking at the variable that controls whether the store is going to be open or not.

store_open = None
store_hours = [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18]
#time = 10
if time in store_hours:
    store_open = True
else:
    store_open = False

hope that helps, buddy!

EDIT like what chris said, commented out test variable don't forget that like I did!

Note the Challenge will not pass if you set the value of time. You will need to comment out time = 10.
