Almost there but alittle confused.
Create a new function named just_right that takes a single argument, a string. If the length of the string is less than five characters, return "Your string is too short". If the string is longer than five characters, return "Your string is too long". Otherwise, just return True.
that is what it asks me to do im alittle stuck
def just_right(string): if len("I love six") < 5: print("Your string is too short") else: print("Your string is too long") return True just_right(string)

you were almost there. you created a function that takes one parameter, but then you're not using this parameter inside the function. Instead you are always checking the length of the string "I love six".
Additionally when you call the function, you need to pass the string you want to check.
If you need the solution scroll down
def just_right(string): if len(string) < 5: print("Your string is too short") else: print("Your string is too long") return True just_right("I love six")
