Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 36

Tell us what’s happening: it’s telling me to Modify your pattern variable to match any letter t preceded by a lowercase letter in the quote variable. Use the range of characters from a to z for that. I don’t really know what the word preceded means so that might be the problem but I tried looking up the definition and it just confused me

Describe your issue in detail here.

Your code so far

import re
import secrets
import string


def generate_password(length, nums, special_chars, uppercase, lowercase):
    # Define the possible characters for the password
    letters = string.ascii_letters
    digits = string.digits
    symbols = string.punctuation

    # Combine all characters
    all_characters = letters + digits + symbols

    while True:
        password = ''
        # Generate password
        for _ in range(length):
            password += secrets.choice(all_characters)
        
        constraints = [
            (nums, '[0123456789]')
        ]        

    return password
    
# new_password = generate_password(8)
# print(new_password)

# User Editable Region

pattern = 't[a-z]'
quote = 'Not all those who wander are lost'
print(re.findall(pattern, quote))

# User Editable Region

Welcome to the forum @idk11

Modify your pattern variable to match any letter t preceded by a lowercase letter in the quote variable. Use the range of characters from a to z for that.

Precede means to come before.

Try moving the letter mentioned in the instructions to the other side of the range.

Happy coding
