I don’t understand how to solve this
Character classes also allow you to indicate a range of characters to match. You need to specify the starting and the ending characters separated by an hyphen, -. Characters follow the Unicode order.

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.

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))

remove () common brackets and put t after ] not before [

rest is correct

Hello Wafflester,

Spacing is important, you don’t want to add any here. Also it asks you to have the t preceding an alphabet letter. You now have an alphabet preceding a t instead.
We also don’t need any round brackets.
