Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

If I change the age variable it tell me the the first case is not being passed

I dont understand if I change the set age variable you give me an error if I dont change it you tell me I should not set the age variable.

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

The main problem in your code is, that you used quotation marks for your True and False. This makes the True and the False to Strings. What we need are booleans not Strings since the admitted variable is a boolean. Well actually it has an empty value, so it could be something else I guess but here it is used as a boolean

admitted = None
age = 13
if age >= 13:
  admitted = True
else:
  admitted = False
