Hi Raviteja!

This passes both:

def square(number):
    return number * number


result = square(3)

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

Not sure I understand your question.

That's the right code.

If you printed the result you'd get 9.

If you passes square 5, you'd get 25.

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!

thank you PETER.. I apologizes.. here my question was wrong.. actual my question is..

[Create a function named square. It should define a single parameter named number.

In the body of the function, return the square of the value that was passed in.

(A *square is the value multiplied by itself. eg: The square of 5 is 25. 25 = 5 x 5)* ]

can you answer this. i kind of struck with this question.

Thank you Peter!
