This shows your first five rows in the ask_posts list of lists


This is my first five rows in the ask_posts list of lists

Observation: Yours shows not just the title but the other features. Mine shows the title(ask_posts).
Question: Why the different. Our aims is to extract the Ask HN and Show HN of which we did. So why is my output different from yours.

You will have to share your code that prints that output, otherwise we can’t be sure of what you did differently.

My code

These are the instructions for that Step -

Implement the following steps:

  • If the lowercase version of title starts with ask hn , append the row to ask_posts .
  • Else if the lowercase version of title starts with show hn , append the row to show_posts .
  • Else append to other_posts .

You are required to append the row, and not the title. When you append the row to the right list depending on the if condition, you should get the same output as theirs.

Thank You. I have implemented the correction and my code is working perfectly fine
