what am I missing? Im on the last question.

The task: Import re. Create an re.match() for the word "Four" in the data variable. Assign this to a new variable named first.

I keep getting the message: 'first' doesn't seem to be a regex match...

basics.py
import re
file_object = open("basics.txt")
data = file_object.read()
file_object.close()

first = print(re.match("Four", data))

Hi Bodie,

The challenge didn't ask you to print, so just remove the print() part.

Hope this helps.
