Hi Selvaraj,

1) We need to include a colon at the end of the function header to let the compiler know that that's the end of the header. 2) You do want to call the randit function, but you'll want to put the class name and a period at the beginning of your call, so that the compiler knows what class the randint method belongs to (so that it can find it.)

import random

def random_num(i):
  return random.randint(1,i)

Hope this helps.
