You appear to have created this post without editing the template. Please edit your post to Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

You have two issues.

Issue no.1:
remove this here

Issue no.2:

slice will extract up to but not including the ending index

right now you are extracting the first 49 characters.

the lesson wants you to extract the first 50 characters.
your ending index is off by one

once you fix that, then the test will pass
