Python range function?

I made a range function for a Python problem, but for some reason it's always retuning as true for the numbers even when it is false. Where might the error in the code be?

def range_test(num):

if num > 1 and num < 555:

num is True


num is False

return num

num = int(input("Enter a number: "))

if range_test(num):

print( "{:d} is in range.".format(num))


print("The number you entered is outside the range!")

    num is True

    is a test. It is NOT an assignment.

    You could use

    def range_test (num):

    ... return num> 1 and num < 555
