Works in the Workspace but not in the challenge...

I don't get why it's not working... When I try this function in the workspace it works well.

slices.py
def first_4(item):
    print(item[:4])

Hi there, Sandra Gury ! It looks like you're doing fantastic! Unfortunately, it seems you missed part of the instructions. The instructions say to return the result, but you're printing the result. Try changing it to a return statement.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
