Python Python Basics (Retired) Shopping List Lists and Strings

When I move on, it says task 1 no longer works even though I didn't change anything from task 1.

When I go back and try to fix it, it says that split is not an attribute.

full_name = "Katherine Hufker"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = ["hi, I'm Treehouse!"].split()

I think it is the brackets in greeting_list that are giving you trouble. Get rid of them and see if it works

Hi, the square brackets around the string are not required, as split is a String method to create a list. So remove the the brackets and it should pass.

You'll also have to capitalize your "Hi" in "hi, I'm Treehouse!" as the code challenge check is case sensitive.
