Combining sundaes with (", ")

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."

shivanand, the third task is a bit tricky, especially in the way it's worded:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(";")

menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes))

Here you join sundaes with the comma and space, and then you use that in format to fill in the {} in the string.

Agreed they should change the wording of this question, makes it seem like you need to create a new sundaes string on a different line, not that you can/should do it all on one line.
