Python Practice Creating and Using Functions in Python Practice Functions That's Odd

my code is running correctly in workspace but i keep getting errors on practice forum

def is_odd(num):
    num_check = num % 2
    if num_check == 0:

num_value = int(input("plese enter a number:   "))

Some hints:

  • the challenge expects you to return values not print them.
  • the values to return are booleans
  • only include the code for the function. remove any test code.

Thanks it seems i have a hard time understanding what challenges expect :/
