Hello all I'm unsure how to solve this challenge. I've tried a function also - no luck, please advise, many thanks

I've tried defining a function for this, to no avail, and am a bit stuck with this challenge.

Not sure if my logic is flawed, or if I'm making a silly mistake with this one here.

Help would be very much appreciated!

Many Thanks

import sys

start_movie = input("Do you want to start the movie? Y/n")
if start_movie != "n" or "N":
    print("Enjoy the show! ")

Hi Adrian,

You have to write the conditional tests in full; you can't use or like that.

You'd need to have:

if start_movie != "n" or start_movie != "N":

However, working through your logic, you'd need both to be != so you should use and. Alternatively, use .lower() to simplify the tests:

if start_movie.lower() != "n":

I hope that helps,


Many thanks Steve - much appreciated!

No problem! :+1:
