Welcome to the forum @angelthesarcasticota

Please return the line above.

Happy coding

You need to assign the replaced string to another variable and then return that variAble.

Or simply just put the whole line which replaces the string in the return statement.

It worked thank you very much :smile:

You are welcome. Please mark it as a solution then. :blush:
