Wording of question is confusing for me. JSON Strings in Flask Basics

Feeling a bit miffed as I'm not understanding and would like a second perspective! been enjoying this so far and would like to continue. Should be able to view the challenge to see the question and such on the top right.

json_string.py
import json

def to_json():

Hi there, Callum Anderson ! Looks like you've got started pretty well. Your function definition is going to need a parameter to hold what we're passing in. In this case, it's asking you to convert it to a string. So you will need the .dumps() method of json here.

import json

def to_json(py_dict): # accept a Python object
    return json.dumps(py_dict)  # convert the Python object (dict) to a string and return it

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

I understood the library but was totally puzzled how to go about it. Thanks so much!!
