In this post you clearly have not done what was asked of you. Downvoted for that reason.
When the program does not give you what you expect, it is certainly not the computer which is wrong, but rather, your expectations.
If your expectations are incorrect, it is likely due to some preconceived notion which is incorrect -- so you can't use logic to get out of the trap, since you'll continue to base your logic on that same faulty assumption.
Instead, what you need is hard, unbiased data.
So -- you asked for help. You were advised to add a print statement. Your response was to theorize on what the print statement might accomplish.
. . . pause . . .
Is there something useful you were hoping to accomplish by not following the help you were given?
