Python Practice Creating and Using Functions in Python Practice Functions That's Odd

2 keeps coming back as true...

I am trying to define this function and I keep getting an error saying that if 2 was the input it would still be True...

create_a_function.py
def is_odd(num):
    num % 2 != 0
    return "True"

You are returning the string "True", not the output of your equation. You should instead return the output of your comparison in the line above.

def is_odd(num):
    return num % 2 != 0
