Can someone tell me why im getting this error for this code? Python

import random def jason(): secret_num = random.randint(1,10) guesses = [] while len(guesses) < 5: try: guess = int(input("guess a number between 1 and 10: ")) except ValueError: print("{} is not a number".format(guess)) else:

        if guess == secret_num:
            print("you got it! my number was{}".format(secret_num))
        elif guess < secret_num:
            print("to low my number is greater than {}".format(guess))
            print("to high my number is lower than {}".format(guess))
    print("not this time, my number was {}".format(secret_num))
play_again = input("do you want to play again? yes or no")
if play_again != "no":
    print("see you later!")

i'm getting this error, i indented the else, that did not fix it, but i want it to say that print so wouldn't it need to stay where it is anyways?

File "number.py", line 24
IndentationError: expected an indented block

line 24 is the very bottom else of the code
