Python Introducing Tuples Getting to Know Tuples Creating Tuples

Why is up with this tuple?

What am I doing wrong in this exercise? Tuples are immutable so I can't add anything to it...

creating_tuples.py
item3 = 1
my_tuple = "I", "love", "python", item3

The tuple created in task 1 should be left as-is (with 3 items in it).

Task 2 says "Create a variable called item3 and assign to it the third element in my_tuple.". It is not asking you to modify the tuple, it's asking you to make a new variable and give it the same value as the third item in the tuple has.
