Why is this answer wrong?
def squared(arg): try: print(int(arg) ** 2) except ValueError: print((str(arg) * len(arg)))
# EXAMPLES # squared(5) would return 25 # squared("2") would return 4 # squared("tim") would return "timtimtim" def squared(arg): try: print(int(arg) ** 2) except ValueError: print(str(str(arg) * len(arg)))

The instructions say the function should return the results. And it doesn't need to "print" anything.

return instead of print. If you print, your function is worthless and cannot be used, it forgets the values in it.
Returning it makes it so you can store the value inside a variable:
def squared(x): try: return int(x) **2 except: return x*len(x) else: return None
