I tried your sample with states.sort(key = len) and it works, other than "Len" → "len" I didn't see any problem. P.S. I agree with Denise, you should've add the language (Python) on the post "Relevant Tags" section.

Can you describe your problem? What have you tried? A list can sort your length, but you need to know which length belongs to which string.

Looks like python (you should tag your language) Maybe this example will help you: https://www.sololearn.com/learn/Python/2435/?ref=app
