def censor(text, word): text = text.split() for w in text: if w == word: w = "*" * len(w) return " ".join(text)
The text is not being changed.
w is a readonly value, not a list element, per se. Anything we assign to
w is not assigned to the list.
If you treat the variable as an index, then it can point to the element you wish to change.
how do I treat the variable as an index?
By using a range in the loop.
for i in range(len(text)):
i will be a number from 0 to len(text) -1, and can be used as an index.
if text[i] == word: text[i] = "*" * len(word)
