For/In Loop Help

Hello! According to the provided solution for the following question, I could use a series of if statements within my function to solve. However, I was wondering if it were possible to shorten the solution with a For/In loop? This is what I have so far:

Am I on the right track? If so, how might I go about finishing it this way?

I ran into another problem where I feel I might be on the right track:

I appreciate any feedback! Thanks :slight_smile:

In Python, break and continue statements can alter the flow of a normal loop. You don’t have a loop, so you can’t use break

also, keep in mind that the list can be of any length.

return does literally what it says: returning/handing back data, which signals that the function is done executing. So the if condition and break code are currently unreachable


For the first question, perhaps value comparisons could be used to find the largest number of the three?


if (num1 > num2) and (num1 > num3): return num1
etc, etc.
