Hi Buck, if you encounter a situation where it says a previous task is no longer passing (and you haven't broken anything), it tends to mean that there is an error in your code that prevents it from running correctly. You're almost there, but there's just two things that need fixing.

1. Correct the condition on your `while` loop.

```while start:
```
2. Brackets around `print` function.

```print("{} is even".format(num))
```
3. (Optional). Since the `even_odd` function returns either `True` or `False`, the conditional check can be shortened, but this is not a requirement of the challenge.

```if even_odd(num):
```

Making the required changes:

```start=5
num = random.randint(1,99) # the code will pass, but it makes more sense inside the loop..
while start:
if even_odd(num)==True:
print("{} is even".format(num))
else:
print("{} is odd".format(num))
start-=1
```

If you have any questions, just ask :)
