Question 6 of 8

Please fill in the correct answer in each blank provided below.

Fill in the blank(s) below:

    Finish this:

        count = int(input("Give me a number: "))
    except ValueError:
        count = 0
        return count * 15

Don't understand what the question is asking, it almost seems like the question has a flaw in it.

Hey David,

the keyword you're looking for here is else because you want to return the count * 15 when there is no error after the try block. I hope that helps!

The question is asking what keyword should be on the blank line to make it correct. In the try statement the second block section after except is else. The answer is else.
