Oops, try again. get_class_average([alice]) returned 83.8666666667 instead of 91.15 as expected

#2

your loop:

for students in class_list:

you shouldn't loop over all students, this function should also work, for one, two or three students (or more if you had more students), that is why you pass students as argument, loop over students, this give you the ability to pass a list with the students when calling the function, to calculate the average for these students

Got it!
Its so logical to do that way.

for student in students :
