**Constraints:**

**Use of multiplication, modulo, or division operators is prohibited.**

One of the approaches known by bitwise operators is as follows:

def is_even(k): """(int) -> bool Returns True if k is even, else False >>>is_even(6) True >>>is_even(3) False """ return (k & 1) == 0 print is_even(6) print is_even(3)

I would like to know if anyone can suggest some python specific alternative solution to this problem.
