Tell us what’s happening:

The print satement (when not commented out) is printing ‘k’, which is the right thing, but my code won’t pass the test. Can someone please explain to me why?

Your code so far

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
index = alphabet.find(text[0].lower())
print(index)
