def add(num1, num2):
        num1= int(input("Give us a numbers: "))

    except ValueError:

Hi Nagamani,

In your try block you are asking the user to supply a string. But you don't want any input from the user, you already have the inputs as the arguments to your function: num1 and num2.

Thank you. I eliminated the input from the user and it worked.
