You're really close! You just don't need to call "tuple":

        return a,b,c,d

A group of things separated by commas makes a tuple.

For future reference, the "tuple" function is used to convert another kind of iterable (like a range or list) into a tuple.

I ran this in a workspace and received the following error:

TypeError: tuple() takes at most 1 argument (4 given)

Changing the return statement to:

return tuple([a,b,c,d])

passed the challenge
