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 ...
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. Otherwise, your program will fail when the user enters an empty string.
