Sorry, didn't use 'reply all' in my initial response. Sending again to
entire list.

This is an exercise that is more about thinking programatically than it is
about writing Python code. However, consider that even numbers are  evenly
divisible by 2 and odds are not. Now try to use the basics you've learned so
far about Python to solve your problem. A while loop, if, and print
statement along with basic mathematic operators are all you really need to
solve this.

Good luck!
