I'm stuck on the remove_duplicates exercise. What's incredibly strange to me is that I can manually supply any list, and my code performs as it should. However, when I submit my code, it returns something erroneous, and I can't figure out what's going on.
For example, when I submit my code, I will receive the following error message:
"Oops, try again. remove_duplicates([6, 8, 122, 2, 18]) returned [4, 5, 6, 8, 122, 2, 18] instead of [8, 122, 18, 2, 6]"
For good measure, try calling the function manually with any list that you want. For me, the function does as it should for all manually supplied lists. As soon as the function is called via saving the code, it will spit out something ridiculous.
The code I'm using is listed below
newlist =  def remove_duplicates(n): for item in n: while newlist.count(item) == 0: newlist.append(item) return newlist
I realize that the method suggested in the hint is superior; however, I wanted to try and make it work my own way.
