Python Python Basics (2015) Number Game App String length

strlen.py

def just_right(x): if len(x) < 5: print("Your string is too short") elif len(x) > 5: print("Your string is too long") else: return True

just_right("test")

Not sure what I am missing here?

strlen.py
def just_right(x):
    if len(x) < 5:
        print("Your string is too short")
    elif len(x) > 5:
        print("Your string is too long")
    else:
        return True

just_right("test")

Hi Raj,

The instructions state that you need to return the strings but you are printing them.
