Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Even or Odd Loop

My code works in Pycharm, bur I am not sure how Treehouse wants me to write the code to pass this level

The error I am getting in workspaces is "Wrong number of prints", but the code works in my Pycharm IDE. Please help I need to move on.

import random

start = 5

def even_odd(num):
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
    return not num % 2

while start == 5:
    num = random.randint(1, 99)
    if even_odd(num) is True:
        print("{} is even".format(num))

        print("{} is odd".format(num))

    start -= 1

Hi, Jamel Stringer !

Your code is almost done.

Just not enough loops. (should be 5, you got one)

Make a while loop that runs until start is falsey. is a key for you!

Does it help?

I don't fully understand falsey. I was under the impression that falsey was no longer true, but since I wrote "While start == 5" and then at the bottom of my loop I wrote start -= 1 and you still make that comment I no longer think I understand what falsey is. So can you explain to me in the simplest terms what does falsey mean in python please?
