I am doing as the instructions say, but it reports the error syntax. I know that it’s correct. So is it a page problem?
You need to specify the object that is to be sliced prior to the square brackets that enclose the slice specifier in this line …
new_word = [1:len(new_word)]
The object that needs to be sliced is
new_word. Therefore, the line should be …
new_word = new_word[1:len(new_word)]
Oh my God! That’s right! Thanks a lot. How could I forget that! I’m so dumb.
