Even or Odd challenge

Could anyone give a explanation why this is wrong?

even.py
def even_odd(num):

    x = int(num)
    for n in x:
        if n % 2 == 0:
            return True
        else:
            return False

The error raised is because you can not iterate over an integer x. The for loop is not needed. Change the if statement to use x instead of n.
