This function doesn't seem to be returning anything as it is, and it isn't supposed to "print" anything.

It should return a boolean True or False value (not a string).

Thanks a lot.. Figured it out!!

value = input("Put in a number to check if its odd ") value = int(value) def is_odd(value): return value % 2 != 0 print(bool(is_odd))

whats wrong with mine
