string length

challenge task 1

def just_right(string):
    string = intu("enter the string")

    if string < 5:
        print("string is too short")
    elif string > 5:
        print("string is too long")

What is intu? What is string on the last line?

Why not like this?

def just_right(str):
    str_len = len(str)

    if str_len < 5:
        return "Your string is too short"
    elif str_len > 5:
        return "Your string is too long"

    return True
