I am having trouble with checkpoint 1, where we call printf(); with no parameters. It asks to put this in script.py but since this is a course on C I don’t have access to that, and it marks it with an X and won’t let me continue bc it throws an error, but this seems to be by design, based on the text of checkpoint 2. What should I do? I’ve reported it as a bug, but potentially this is a me issue rather than a site issue.


I’m having the same issue. Cannot proceed.

I’ve run into the same issues.

Answer (workaround for now): click “Get Unstuck” then “Get Code Solution,” and that will autofill the code solution and check off all the boxes, allowing you to proceed.
