Remember that input is always string in Python. You need to convert it to a numerical type (int or float).

Remember that the code requires interaction which doesn't really work on sololearn. On sololearn you have to give all inputs before running.

Use guess = int(input()) to convert the input to integer. Use guess = float(input()) to convert the input to a floating point number. The comparison operator ">" cannot be used between a string and a numerical value.

Okay, so how do i make the number not change every time you guess? Simon Sauter ravilnicki

Or a for loop. Both are possible. If you want the player to guess until they get it right use a while loop. If you want a fixed number of guesses you can use either a while loop or a for loop.

So if i used a different code editor it would work?

Use a loop to allow multiple guesses.

Like a while loop?

It should work in offline IDEs. Some online editors like sololearn require you to give all input upfront so it can be sent to a server together with the code where it is executed. If you're on android you can use pydroid3 as offline IDE. On PC you have lots of options.

You make everything right. But one notice: when you use input(), you ask somebody to input something in your program. Now it is not obvious... In input possible to write some text for user above somebody said that sololearn works not good with inputs. But in other platform you should write int(input("please, input integer number to find out wheather it odd or even")) this hint helps user to understand what to do.

It depends on input. Input is even than print if statement. Input is odd than print else statement.

Line 10 needs to be indented one more level.

You also need to move the guess into the loop.

You have to define the variable guess before the loop. Use any value (just make sure it's not the same as number, you can just use number + 1). Otherwise the while condition is undefined for the first iteration. The actual guessing via input has to be inside the loop.
