Can not get String exercise right

I can not get the String Lenght exercise right.

I tested the code in Python IDLE and it does work. But I still get Bummer message in the system.

Could you please help? Thanks a lot!

strlen.py
def just_right(string):
    if len(string) < 5:
        print("Your string is too short")
    elif len(string) > 5:
        print("Your string is too long")
    else:
        return True

Try put the print() in the single quotation, not double.

The task says that the function must return , just change your print to return and your all set.

The challenge says to return strings, not print them.

As Reyam suggested, changing this will resolve the issue.
