Function works when running in python but gives "Bummer! Try again!" on here

def just_right(string): if len(string) < 5: print("Your string is too short") elif len(string) > 5: print("Your string is too long") else: return True

strlen.py
def just_right(string):
    if len(string) < 5:
        print("Your string is too short")
    elif len(string) > 5:
        print("Your string is too long")
    else:
        return True

Hi there! You're doing great, but you missed part of the instructions, I believe. The instructions ask you to return the string, but you're printing the string. Try changing the two print statements to return statements and give it another go!

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
