Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in your program else should be below if statement >>> x=15 >>> if (x/2)*2 == x : print 'even' else: print 'odd' Do something like this >>> def test() : x = 15 if (x/2)*2 == x : print 'even' else : print 'odd' >>> test() odd

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok you should do something like this def test() : # after test its not zero its these ( ) braces, press enter after typing this line x = 15 # just type x = 15 if (x/2)* 2 == x : # this line should start from where x variable starts ,press enter print 'even' #press enter else : # when you press enter the your cursor will be below p of print(previous line) move it left by using left arrow key print 'odd' #press enter #press enter again You will get a prompt like >>> type there test() # not zero but ( ) and press enter you will get the output.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The course does recommend a particular Python version, 2.5.4 I believe... however, all the 2.X versions are supposed to be backwards compatible with each other
