Which could mess up the program. 31 # If we hit this if statement above statement is printed then program exits. 32 quit() # Now you don't need to get sys.exit() to exit python has quit to handle the same thing 33 if num in [2, 3]: 34 # if given argument is 2 or 3, it is prime. We used list without defining a variable which is perfectly valid 35 return True 36 if num % 2 == 0: # excluding all even numbers except two. 37 return False 38 else: 39 # Here we are starting counter variable from 3 in range. Second argument excludes numbers above one third 40 # of the given argument. Third argument in range sets steps to take to 2. This makes loop to iterate odds 41 for x in range(3, int(num/3), 2): 42 # Checking if argument is divisible by counter. % is modulus operator which returns remainder of division 43 if num % x == 0: 44 return False 45 # It's okay to have more than one return statement when program hits return statement it exits the function. 46 return True
