# Short solution in Python.. why not working?

• ``````class Solution(object):

I got wrong answer on this one:

``````Input:
["..9748...","7........",".2.1.9...","..7...24.",".64.1.59.",".98...3..","...8.3.2.","........6","...2759.."]
Output:
["..9748...","7........",".2.1.9...","..7...24.",".64.1.59.",".98...3..","...8.3.2.","........6","...2759.."]
Expected:
["519748632","783652419","426139875","357986241","264317598","198524367","975863124","832491756","641275983"]``````

• because you isVaild function is wrong ,
if c in board[i][:] you set board[i][j] = c first so the c always in board[i][:], isValid always return False
