Hello Crzyjay,

Originally in the code there were 2 comments

print(index)
print(text.lower())

They wanted you to remove the 2nd comment, and keep the first one.
Then the second part of the question:

“instead of text[0] , pass text[0].lower() to find()

Needs to be done, in the find method you already have where you assigned your index variable. Right now in there it says text[0] but the question asks you to change it into text[0].lower().

Hey @pehotapd08, It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.
