I think this challenge is incredibly poorly worded, it took me a few minutes of reading it over and over and playing with it to figure out what they were wanting. It wants you to take the third value of the tuple and store it in a variable called item3.

my_tuple = ("I", "love", "python")
item3 = my_tuple[2]

We can access values of a tuple by index, but remember they're immutable and can't be changed
