You need to use a regular expression to make sure your code works for every input matching the conditions. Take another look at lesson 84.1 of the Python Core course.

Hi Raoof! There are too many words that start from "m" and end with "e" not just mile and mine. It's better to try using regex to solve this challenge since it's related to that lesson. Alternatively, you can approach this using string slicing method(first and last letters) or there are some in-built functions called startswith() and endswith(). You can use them to check the first letter and last letter. Syntax: var = "Raoof" print(var.startswith("R)) -> True print(var.endswith("F)) -> False

import re w = input() p = r"^m..e
quot; if re.match(p, w): print("Match") else: print("No Match")
