that’s not at the top of the loop

put above lines inside for loop by replacing below line

“At the top of the loop” means, within the loop, but the first thing in the loop (After the for statement)

same issue here, what could else could be wrong

Hello Mohamed, welcome to the forum!

You will have to remove the round brackets in the if statement, in phyton you don’t need them.

Also if you have any further questions I would recommend making your own topic by using the help button under the step so we can all help you better.
