In the following,

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

What is the use of return True in this function?
Thank you in advance!!


I have the same question.

Even me. Why return True!?
In the example code, would it not be better to assign the built-in function (max()) result to a variable and then return that variable instead of returning True?

I also have the same question. When and how would “return True” make sense?
