What has you confused? Please talk to us about how you are stuck in your own words

Here is what I have to do:
Now, replace new_char with encrypted_text . Also, modify the print() call to reflect this change.

My code doesn’t pass. Why? I’ve replaced new char with encrypted_text.

I can read the instructions. I can’t read your mind to know your confusion.

The word ‘new_char’ here is what you are intended to replace

This is the suggestion made : You should replace new_char with encrypted_text .

If you see I’ve changed new__char with encrypted_text but the code doesn’t pass, why?

No, you didn’t replace ‘new_char’. It’s still there

ok thank you done now
