E written without quotes is not a string.

I wrote this but it doesn’t pass.

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
encyrpted_text = ''

for char in text.lower():
    index = alphabet.find(char)
    new_index = index + shift
    new_char = alphabet[new_index]
    print('char:', char, 'new char:', new_char)

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').
