I need help!


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?


Hi @thankstocode,

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.
