Code works in workspace but when I run it in the task area it says "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing"

Challenge Task 2 of 2

Now make a function named random_num that takes an int argument. Return a randint between 1 and the passed-in number.

import random

userInput = input()

def random_num(intArg1):
  print(random.randint(1, int(intArg1)))

Hi Adam

you dont need to print the random number generated nor do you need to call the function.

import random

def random_num(myInt):
  return random.randint(1,int(myInt))

I'm curious how I should have got this answer. Don't recall learning that in the previous lessons.

For some reason, this is not working for me. Is it a glitch in the system?

import random
def random_num(inum):
return random.randint(1, inum)

The return actually is at the same level as the def statement. This does work in Workspaces. Am I misunderstanding what the question is?
