Hey @samini099, welcome to the community.
The error you’re seeing is
TypeError: 'str' object is not callable, and the error points to where you use
What this is telling you is that
list has been made into a string, and that you can’t “call” (use with parenetheses like
list()) a string.
At some point in your notebook you have likely done something like the below:
list = "this is a string I'm assigning to the variable name `list`"
This will overwrite the built-in
list() function with your string. There are two ways you can resolve this issue. One is to use the
del keyword to delete your
list variable, which will leave the built-in function underneath for use again:
If you’re working in Jupyter notebook and you no longer have the code that overwrote the list function, another option is to go to Kernel >> Restart and Run all which will reset your python kernel and run all cells, which deletes all the variables you previously created.
I hope this is helpful — if there is any part of this you don’t understand, please let me know
