Hello Lao,

You were very close! Right now you asigned shifted to index + shift which is a number, not a character. What you are missing is finding the character at the number you found in alphabet.
Alphabet is a string, and to find, let’s say the first character, you can use alphabet[0]. So now instead of 0, you need to find the character at the location you want.
