Summary

Instruction

Well done! To check the number of elements in a tuple, we can use the len() function:

user_data = ('John', 'Smith', 29, 1.85, 'British')
if len(user_data) > 4:

In the code above, we print 'A lot of info available!' only if there are more than four items in the user_data tuple.

Stuck? Here's a hint!

We need four elements in each tuple, so check the following condition:

if len(item) < 4:
