# Why syntax error?

import random

secret=random.randint(1, 10)

while True: gn=int(input("Guess the number ") if gn == secret: print("U guessed it right, the number is {}".format(sn)) break else: print("Try again")

if gn == secret:
^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Try

```import random

secret=random.randint(1, 10)

while True: gn=int(input("Guess the number ") if gn == secret: print("U guessed it right, the number is {}".format(secret)) break else: print("Try again")
```

Try replacing .format(sn) in your code to .format(secret) since I don't see anything assigned to 'sn'

I found 2 errors in your code. rohanubhare found the first with needing to use 'secret' in place of 'sn', since you had not set 'sn' to anything previously. The second was the line, gn = int(input("Guess the number "), is missing the closing ")". The code below worked when I tested it, with those 2 changes.

```import random

secret = random.randint(1, 10)

while True:
print(secret)
gn = int(input("Guess the number "))
if gn == secret:
print("U guessed it right, the number is {}".format(secret))
break
else:
print("Try again")
```
