Python

What is wrong with my code? SOLVED

I have trouble with this challenge: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/python-basics/logic-in-python/conditional-value

I think I have the right solution but I can't pass. I'd be very happy if someone more experienced Python programmer would point out what I'm doing wrong. Here is my code for the challenge:

admitted = None

if age >= 13:
  admitted = True
  else:
  admitted = False

The error I get is: Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.

Ok, I figured it out. It seems that Python is very strict about how it's written. This passed the code:

admitted = None
if age >= 13:
  admitted = True
else:
  admitted = False

As you discovered, indentation is critical to Python's concept of grouping. Your original placement of the else put it inside the if group, without its own If.

Congrats on solving your own issue. You get a :star: for that. :wink:

Thanks for the star Steven!
