This one is tricky. The error you receive is: Bummer: Your file has 1 error(s) on line(s) 11: expected 1 blank line, found 0. So you will want:

def first_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


def second_function(arg1):
    return 'arg1 is {}'.format(arg1)


class MyClass:
    args = [1, 2, 3]

    def class_func(self):
        return self.args

With your code put the cursor just before def class_func(self) and press enter to create the blank line. You then receive: Bummer: Your file has 1 error(s) on line(s) 11: blank line contains whitespace.

Put your cursor at the beginning of line 11 then press delete 4 times. You will see a red line on line 12 until the 4th time you press delete. Then you should be good.

Thank you sooo much for your help
