it prints what "I" expect, it probably does not print what you expect

you have may times been told that str(range(10)) does not do what you 
expect but you keep failing to test

you think that it crates a list of strings ['1','2','3'....] but it does 
it creates a list & then turns the whole list into a string '[1,2,3...]'

people are suggesting you try this things in the interactive prompt 
because doing teaches far better than just reading.
