PyCharm interpreter returns correct value for 1 but Challenge test does not:/

When I run the is_odd(1) in PyCharm it returns True as it should but Challenge tests keep complaining that is_odd(1) returns False :/ What is happening? Why the discrepancy?

def is_odd(num):
    remainder = num % 2
    if remainder != 0:
    #elif num == 1:

Hi Nataliya

In the challenge you need to use return instead of print.

Edit: Don't forget to lose the parens and the single quotations marks.

Hope this helps!
