Hiya there! Well, you don't have to squeeze the code in the function when it is not asked in the challenge, 'coz it'll throw an error for sure. Moreover, the code wasn't correct as well. The challenge wants you to open a file with open() function and store the contents of the file in a variable. And here is how your code should look like:

with open('basics.txt') as file:
    file_object = file

I hope it helped!
