Help please this's why wrong?



Hi, @emilyty ,

You need to assign the solution to new_word and then output new_word as the answer.

Also note that have this line prior to the if block ...


The if condition tests to make sure that original contains at least one character. You should move the lines that follow the raw_input call into the if block, so that you perform the test before you perform processing on the user's input, such as attempting to access word[0]. Otherwise, your program will fail when the user enters an empty string.
