Hi @Hafis917

The instruction:

There is no mention of using an if statement.
The code needs to be the first line in the for loop.

Please reset the step and try again.

Happy coding

I am having the same problem. are we suppose to delete the “text.lower” i am just confused on where to put it.

No, if the instructions don’t mention deleting anything, then you don’t need to.

“At the beginning of your loop body”

This means the next line after the for statement. for creates the for loop, and the next indented line is beginning of the loop body, the code block that will be executed in a loop:

for char in text.lower():

Hello, I’m a bit lost in the 41 challenge.

I don’t understand what I need to do more, I’ve used the print() function and outputted the result of the comparaisons for the two value asked.

I found the solution. Sorry for the silly question
