Why is it not working?

Please have a look at this challenge. Could you tell me what is wrong?

mapping.py
TILES = ('-', ' ', '-', ' ', '-', '||',
         '_', '|', '_', '|', '_', '|', '||',
         '&', ' ', '_', ' ', '||',
         ' ', ' ', ' ', '^', ' ', '||'
)
for item in TILES:
    if item != '||':
        endline = ""
        print(item, end=endline)
    else:
        endline = "\n"
        print("\n", end=endline)

Hi Brendan,

I was just looking into the answer, and still cannot get it. I tried to put two blank lines instead - does not work. Please advise.

There is some ambiguity in the challenge wording. A fully blank line is expected between printed characters. The short fix is to replace the else block with a simple

    else:
        print('\n')

Thanks a lot Chris!

Hi Maiia,

Your original code should have worked and it passes for me when I try it.

Chris' answer would be the more straightforward approach though.
