what is the answer to challenge 3? i thought it is "greeting_list[2] = name_list[0]" but it doesn't work

I am going through the challenge 3 but I couldn't figure out the answer. May someone suggest what's wrong in my code? thanks.

greeting_list.py
full_name = "Cheng Ming Chit"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split()
greeting_list[2] = full_name

1 Answer

This should work:

full_name = "my name"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm Treehouse".split(" ")
greeting_list[2] = name_list[0]

When you tried it, you might have had a typo or something, but it does work.
