I am completing the code as requested. Not sure what’s going on here…

Your code so far

text = ‘Hello Zaira’
shift = 3
def caesar():
alphabet = ‘abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz’
encrypted_text = ‘’

for char in text.lower():
if char == ’ ':
encrypted_text += char
else:
index = alphabet.find(char)
new_index = (index + shift) % len(alphabet)
encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]

print(‘plain text:’, text)
print(‘encrypted text:’, encrypted_text)

You need to indent all the code below the function declaration, every line.

Happy coding
