Why can't this work?

So if I take out these color names and put numbers in their place the list will work. But with the color names it does not? Even with each color name surrounded with ' ' and " " the list will not work.

lists.py
colors = [blue,green,yellow,red,orange]

You have to put quotes around it otherwise it will think that they are variables.

You should probably put spaces around each variable and add '' around them.
