len(arg) - Can anyone see what I have done wrong?

I tested this on the shell and it works. Can anyone see what I have done wrong?

strlen.py
def just_right(arg):
    if len(arg) < 5:
        print("Your string is too short")
    elif len(arg) > 5:
        print("Your string is too long")
    else:
        return True

You have a very minor mistake. Nothing to worry about!

The challenge is asking for you to return those strings, not to print them. Just change the values to "return 'Your string is too short.'" and "return 'Your string is too long.'" respectively. Then try again.
