    if char == ' ':
        encrypted_text += char
    else:
        index = alphabet.find(char)
        new_index = (index + shift) % len(alphabet)

Right before the print call, add another one and pass 'plain text:', text as the arguments to print() . Use the same indentation.

Your code is correct but it should be before the other print call, not after it.
