What am I doing wrong? (even-odd)

I am lost on this one

even.py
import random
start=5
def even_odd(num):
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    if num%2=0:
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
        return not num % 2
        print('{} is even'.format(num))
    else:
        print('{} is  odd'.format(num))

while start is True:
    num=random.randint(1,99)
    return num
    even_odd(num)
    start-=1

Good day, there are a few things you need to sort though.

  1. You did not need to change the function even_odd. Put it back to the way it was.

  2. Remove the line return num

  3. Create an if condition.

if even_odd(num):
    print(.....)
else:
    print(.....)

start-=1
