Tuple - Challenge

Could someone please assist with this coding challenge? I don't believe I understand what I'm supposed to do here since tuples are immutable, how should i add an element to one?

creating_tuples.py
my_tuple = ('I', 'love', 'python')

It just wants you to save the value of the third element of the tuple to the variable item3. You can't change the value of a tuple element, but you can access them.
