When you call a method, the value of value in your is_odd() method becomes whatever is passed. Additionally, your conditional operators should be flipped to !=, which means not equal to. Finally, the value we are returning is whether or not the passed value is odd which means we are returning a boolean (True or False).

value = 11
def is_odd(value):
    return value % 2 != 0
