I wonder if I am misunderstanding your question.  This is a simple 
question about how functions work in Python, right?  Something that most 
every beginning tutorial covers?  You wouldn't be asking here if you had 
done your homework.

Wow, that's one long function!  It looks like either you don't 
understand what you wrote:
     consective_zero = 0
     ## I don't know what this is
or maybe someone else has commented your code?

And seriously, you'll likely get better answers, faster, when you ask 
better questions.  It's faster, more efficient and more rewarding.  A 
smart question also shows us that you will value the time we spend on 
the answer.  Taking the time to formulate a smart question will often 
help you answer the question on your own.  Actually you did find the 
answer on your own (assuming I understand the question and that you 
wrote the function yourself): 'return'.
