Length of queryset in a Django response

I couldn't get this test to work. First, I tried this.

from django.http import HttpResponse

from .models import Article

def article_list():
    return HttpResponse('There are {count} articles.'.format(count=len(Article.objects.all())))

I thought about 'There are no articles.' and 'There is 1 article.', but guessed that wouldn't be necessary at such a basic level, or there would be some hints about that in the question.

from django.http import HttpResponse

from .models import Article

def article_list():
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    response_str = None
    if len(articles) > 1:
        response_str = 'There are {count} articles.'.format(count=len(articles))
    else if len(articles) is 1:
        response_str = 'There is 1 article.'
        response_str = 'There are no articles.'
    return HttpResponse(response_str)
