Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Even or Odd Loop

even or odd challenge

the error that appears says that Task 1 is no longer passing, which makes me believe there is something wrong with the import or the call to the import DB. but not sure where I went wrong.

import random

def even_odd(num):
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
    return not num % 2
start = 5

while start > 1:
    rando = random.randint(1,99)
    if even_odd(rando) == True:
        print("{} is even".format(rando))
        print("{} is odd".format(ranndo))

    start = start - 1

Hi there! Personally, I think you're doing really well. The "Task 1 is no longer passing" is due to a syntax error and is the most common reason to get that particular message. You defined a variable named rando to hold your random number, but in your else statement you are trying to format the string with the variable ranndo which is undefined. Note the double "nn" there: rando vs ranndo.

When you fix this, you will still have another problem. That loop is exiting before it reads the last number. You will need to change your condition to make it run to completion. There are several ways to fix this.

I hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
