It looks like it might be, but indentation is so important in Python, it's impossible to be sure without formatting.

Use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:   Or watch this video on code formatting.

Commonly I know if...else pair, but I didn't come across with while...else, it seems in this video that else is paired with while, and this worked out.

Python is the only language I know that allows an "else" after a loop. It is executed if and when the loop ends by failing the conditional expression. It is not executed if you "break" out of the loop.
