# Hacker rank string seperated challenge

I need help with this challenge, I keep getting an error with this hacker rank challenge comes out right with jupyter notebook but not in hacker rank console.

Task Given a string, of length that is indexed from to, print its even-indexed and odd-indexed characters as space-separated strings on a single line (see the Sample below for more detail).

Note: is considered to be an even index.

Example

Print abc def

Input Format

```# Enter your code here. Read input from STDIN. Print output to STDOUT
t = input()
p = len(t)

for i in range(p):
s = t[i]
n = len(s)
even = []
odd = []
for j in range(n):
if j % 2 == 0:
even.append(s[j])
for j in range(n):
if j % 2 != 0:
odd.append(s[j])
first_join=''.join(even)
second_join = ''.join(odd)
print("{} {}".format(first_join,second_join)

```

You’re iterating over `s`, where `s = t[i]`, which is incorrect.

```t = input()
p = len(t)

even = []
odd = []
for j in range(p):
if j % 2 == 0:
even.append(t[j])
for j in range(n):
if j % 2 != 0:
odd.append(t[j])
first_join=''.join(even)
second_join = ''.join(odd)
print("{} {}".format(first_join,second_join)
```

You can use list comprehension to make it easier.

```t = ""
p = len(t)
even = ''.join([t[i] for i in range(0,p,2)])
odd = ''.join([t[i] for i in range(1,p,2)])
print(f"{even} {odd}")
```
