import random

start = 5

def even_odd(num):
    while start:
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
      x = random.randint(1, 99)
      if x % 2 == 0:
        print("{} is even".format(x))
        print("{} is odd".format(x))
      start = start - 1
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
    return not num % 2

The function even_odd() should be called not modified. Try placing your while loop beneath the function, and calling the function with the random number you generate as the argument.
