whats wrong with my code thanks for the help
Now I want you to make a subclass of list. Name it Liar. Override the len method so that it always returns the wrong number of items in the list. For example, if a list has 5 members, the Liar class might say it has 8 or 2. You'll probably need super() for this.
import random class Honest: def __init__(self): self.listofnums =  def __len__(self): return len(self.listofnums) class Liar(Honest): def __len__(self): super().__len__(self) if len(self.listofnums) == 2: return random.randint(1, 10): else: return self.listofnums

The challenge is a little simpler than you thought. You don't have to create an Honest class with encapsulated listofnums. The challenge just asks for a subclass of the Python 'list' type that returns a length that is always wrong. That can be accomplished by adding or subracting a non-zero integer to the value that is returned from the super class len(). The Liar class len function won't ever return the correct value -- but, the other list operations like append(), replace(), etc. as per the definition of a subclass will work as they should.
class Liar(list): def __len__(self): liar_len = super().__len__() + 1 # len() always lies because it is one more return liar_len
