# Code seems to be correct but I can't proceed through the section . Can someone please tell me what's wrong with the code?

Hello @samhithalelouch,

You do not need to put code that analyses user input. All you need to do is define the compute bill function. All you need to do in your `compute_bill()` function is to iterate over the items list, check if the `stock` is greater than zero, and if it is, add the `price` of of the item to a variable, and return that variable. Minimalistic code is always the way to go !

thank you for the reply but is the code with the user input wrong ? if the logic is correct , errors shouldn't pop up right ?

Hey @samhithalelouch,

every exercise in CodeCademy has a SCT, or a Submission Correctness Test, which checks if your code is correct and if you can pass onto the next round. In this case, I don't think the SCT expects the user to go above and beyond in this exercise. So stick to the instructions precisely, and you'll be good to go!
