# Why my solution is not passing the Test?

https://app.dataquest.io/c/62/m/331/python-data-analysis-basics/8/formatting-numbers-inside-strings

My Code:

``````pop_millions = [
["China", 1379.302771],
["India", 1281.935991],
["USA",  326.625791],
["Indonesia",  260.580739],
["Brazil",  207.353391],
]

template = "The population of {country} is {number:,.2f} million"
for i in pop_millions:
state = i[0]
population = i[1]
output = template.format(country=state,    number=population)

print(output)
``````

What I expected to happen:

• The population of China is 1,379.30 million
• The population of India is 1,281.94 million
• The population of USA is 326.63 million
• The population of Indonesia is 260.58 million

What actually happened:

``````- actual + expected

+ The population of China is 1,379.30 million
+ The population of India is 1,281.94 million
+ The population of USA is 326.63 million
+ The population of Indonesia is 260.58 million
The population of Brazil is 207.35 million

The output of your code didn't match what we expected.

Hi together,

i canâ€™t see what is the issue here. Is my complete Code false or does it fails only at the Brazil output? I donâ€™t get a red line where my Code is buggy.

To check i executed my Code also on Pythontutor and the Output seems fine to me.
Hope somebody can help me here.

Thanks.

The output of your code is. . .

The lack of red lines tell us that you didnâ€™t print anything that wasnâ€™t supposed to be there.
The green lines tell us that we expected those lines, but they werenâ€™t output.
The gray (or whatever color it is) tells us that that line was printed correctly.

So, youâ€™re only printing one of the lines. Why is that?

Thanks for checking Bruno.
I think after your hint that the problem is that the print Output is not in the Loop?
