text = 'Hello World'
Albatross = text

/* User Editable Region */

Your code works as it prints (char, index).

Maybe you’ve been asked to reassign the variable text to the string ‘Albatross’?
text = ‘Hello World’
text = ‘Albatross’

Maybe you need to print the variable new_index that inside the for loop after adding (shift)?
Please tell what you need help with.

message = 'Hello there!'

Delete the text[0] line and reassign text the string Albatross.

message is the variable
'Hello there!' is the string

Delete text[0] line and reassign the variable text the string Albatross.
text[0] = ‘C’

The syntax is this: variable = 'string'
