Don’t add code that is not required. Please, try to stick with the instructions otherwise you won’t pass the tests.

You need to call .find() on alphabet and pass text[0] to the find method. You are supposed to do it in a single line.

Welcome to the forum @peghuembamfon

The instructions:

Call the find method on the alphabet variable, then pass the text[0].
They did not specify to print anything.

Happy coding

Thanks, it worked now
