Your code is more complex than it needs to be. Try using only the count function, and no lists. Also, for help, please join the dmoj discord server instead of asking for help in the comments.

Is the input used only for the iteration?

At first I thought it would be used to build the sequence of characters, but then in the end, I realized it wasn't.

Yes, it is there to tell you how many characters there will be, as stated by the problem.

For example, if you are to ignore it, you will need 2 for-loops to get the answer, instead of one
