Others have already told you how to do this. But I have
a question: why do you care that it is a tuple, not a
list? Is there something you need to do with it that
can be done with tuples but not lists?
In other words, while it isn't *wrong* to convert the
list to a tuple, perhaps it is *unnecessary*?
