Let’s first quickly review functions in Python.

def bigger(first, second): print max(first, second) return True

In the example above:

  1. We define a function called bigger that has two arguments called first and second.
  2. Then, we print out the larger of the two arguments using the built-in function max.
  3. Finally, the bigger function returns True.

Now try creating a function yourself!



Write a function called answer that takes no arguments and returns the value 42.

Even without arguments, you will still need parentheses.Don’t forget the colon at the end of the function definition!
