class Question(models.Model):

    pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

    def __str__(self):
        return self.question_text
    
    def get_versions(self):
        return reversion.get_for_object(self)

    def was_published_recently(self):
        now = timezone.now()
        return now - datetime.timedelta(days=1) <= self.pub_date <= now

    was_published_recently.admin_order_field = 'pub_date'
    was_published_recently.boolean = True
    was_published_recently.short_description = 'Published recently?'

        #return self.pub_date >= timezone.now() - datetime.timedelta(days=1) #buggy_code

class Choice(models.Model):
    question = models.ForeignKey(Question, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
    choice_text = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    votes = models.IntegerField(default=0)

    def __str__(self):
        return self.choice_text
    
    def get_versions(self):
