Unable to pass even though my output seems correct. May I know what's wrong in my code?

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
It’s telling me that my output is wrong but I am not sure where did I make a mistake
because when I am comparing the output, it looks the same as mine. May I know what is wrong in my code here?

Your code so far

There was a simple mistake which has been solved. I was returning the answer line too even when there wasn’t any True argument. I’m not getting any errors now.
