Why is step 1 no longer passing?

favorite_things = ['raindrops on roses', 'whiskers on kittens', 'bright copper kettles', 'warm woolen mittens', 'bright paper packages tied up with string', 'cream colored ponies', 'crisp apple strudels']

slice1 = favorite_things[1:4] slice2 = favorite_things[5:7] sorted_things = favorite_things(:) sorted_things.sort()

You should use [:] instead of (:). Remember: You use bracket notation (don't use parens) to get a index or slice a list!

I hope this helps :grin:
