# Learn Tree Traversal by Building a Binary Search Tree - Step 52

### Tell us what’s happening:

i cant seem to pinpoint my mistake here. im creating an object as asked

``````class TreeNode:
def __init__(self, key):
self.key = key
self.left = None
self.right = None

class BinarySearchTree:
def __init__(self):
self.root = None

def insert(self,key):
self.root = self._insert(self.root, key)

def _insert(self, node, key):
if node is None:
return TreeNode(key)
if key < node.key:
node.left = self._insert(node.left, key)
elif key > node.key:
node.right = self._insert(node.right, key)
return node

def search(self, key):
return self._search(self.root, key)

def _search(self, node, key):
if node is None or node.key == key:
return node
if key < node.key:
return self._search(node.left, key)
return self._search(node.right, key)

def delete(self, key):
self.root = self._delete(self.root, key)

def _delete(self, node, key):
if node is None:
return node
if key < node.key:
node.left = self._delete(node.left, key)
elif key > node.key:
node.right = self._delete(node.right, key)
else:
if node.left is None:
return node.right
elif node.right is None:
return node.left

node.key = self._min_value(node.right)
node.right = self._delete(node.right, node.key)
return node

def _min_value(self, node):
while node.left is not None:
node = node.left
return node.key

def inorder_traversal(self):
result = []
self._inorder_traversal(self.root, result)
return result

def _inorder_traversal(self, node, result):
if node:
self._inorder_traversal(node.left, result)
result.append(node.key)
self._inorder_traversal(node.right, result)

# User Editable Region

bst = BinarySearchTree(self)

What do you think of the indentation level?

I’ll add that `self` is used internally by the class, it’s not a variable that you pass. It’s used to represent whatever the instance will be called, “bst” in this case.
