I passed question one on this quiz, then I add the else statement to the 2nd question and it says the 1st Q failed.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Googled to make sure my code was right.

conditions.py
admitted = None
if age >= 13:
     admitted = True
        else: 
            admitted = False

Hi Richard,

The possible reason for this happening is because of the indentation of your conditional statement. The Python challenges are very strict on this. The correct code is displayed below which will pass the challenge:

if age >= 13:
    admitted = True
else:
    admitted = False

your indentation is wrong. the else should be under the if, at the left edge. the two assignments of admitted should be tabbed over once to the right.

if statement
    blahblah
else
    blahblah
