When solving a challenge, make sure you don't add anything extra or less, because the challenge requires you to solve it as per the instructions, nothing more or less.

In your case, you've added extra code.

def square(number):

    return ( number *number)

enter_no = int(input( "enter the no?   "))👈#No instructions, to create an input variable named "enter_no" << Invalid code

sq_no = square(enter_no) 👈#No instructions, to create a variable named "sq_no", rather it should be "result"
print("the sq of{} is{}".format(enter_no,sq_no)) 👈#No instructions, to create this line of code at all

There are two parts of the challenge, the first part is done, as, for the second part, the challenge requires three things from you:

1) create a variable named result.

2) call the function square and in it, pass it the argument 3

3) assign this function to the variable result
