Python Python Basics Functions and Looping Raise an Exception

Raise valueError

I don't know what's wrong with my code. I constantly getting error message

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) < 3:
       raise ValueError("Too short try again")
       return product_idea + "inator"

You need to outdent your return statement so it lines up with the if statement. Otherwise it is part of the if block. It also looks like you have inconsistency in your indentation. The if statement is indented 4 spaces but the raise ValueError statement is only indented 3 spaces beyond that.

Thanks
