I have been looking at this problem for about an hour, but it still doesn't seem to make any sense. If I am supposed to start counting from Zero. how is the fifth letter Y? Surely it is 4 if 0 is the starting number. Especially as the example on the page says exactly that.

Is it just me being stupid, or does the instruction need looking at?


Replace this line with your code.

5th letter is counted like we humans count (starting at 1), so y is the 5th letter which has an index of 4.

Ahhhhh right. Yeah that makes total sense now I look at it again. I clearly didn't take in to account the word index. Thanks for the assistance!!
