Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 41

Tell us what’s happening:

Where am i wrong ? i have used the print function at the start of the loop comparing the char value with the empty space or encrypted_text. And i got the required output that says ‘False’ and yet the code still doesnt seem right when im clicking submit.

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

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

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

What error message are you getting? It can often help to look carefully at the exact wording of the error message.

can you show how you compare the character to an empty space? here you are comparing to encrypted_text, which is not an empty space
