Why is double_list returning the wrong list values?
Assuming you wrote the rest of the function correctly, using
n is in the
for loop the exercise starts you off with, then the issue is likely how you indented your
return statement. Remember, as soon as a function executes a
return statement, it exits immediately and gives that value to wherever the function was called in the program. Take a look at the code below:
def my_function(numbers): for i in range(0, len(numbers)): print numbers[i] = 0 return numbers
return statement is inside of the
for loop, and therefore the loop can only possibly run one time before the function exits. To fix this, unindent the
return statement until it’s at the same level as the
for, so it’s still inside of the function.
