Practice Creating and Using Functions in Python

Hi there,

I'm running the following code and my output returns True if the argument passed through the parameter is odd

create_a_function.py
def is_odd(x):
    if x % 2 != 0:
        print(True)
    else:
        print(False)

x = 1
test = is_odd(x)

The instructions ask for the function to return a True/False value. It won't need to "print" anything.
