• "if in" & "if not in" condition not triggering

Question related to mission Hacker Language


First, I apologize if this is not the right place for this. I'm getting a code error when trying to Solve this task. I believe the error is because the "if in" and "if not in" conditions aren't triggering properly. I do pass the "Run" test, but not the "Check" test. I'm not certain what I am overlooking; maybe someone can point me in the right direction as to why the "if in" and "if not in" statements never trigger?
