I did every thing riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

this keeps saying "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing."

even.py
import random
start = 5

def even_odd(num):
    return not num % 2

while start > 0:
    num = random.randint(1,99)
    if even_odd(num) == False
        print ("{} is odd".format(num))
    else: 
        print ("{} is even".format(num))
    start -= 1

    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.

have the while loop go over start

  1. while start:
  2. and remember it wants you to have start be falsey, its already falsey so in the if statement you need to fix that with evaluating even_odd with num. dont forget your colon

HI Seong,

Yes you did everything correct except for one small syntax error... you forgot a colon after your if statement.
