Hello, Global variables are variables that are simply created outside of a function. You do not need to specify anything specific. If you would like to create a global variable inside of a function you would use the "global" keyword, which then makes the variable belong to the global scope, down below is an example.

Example

If you use the global keyword, the variable belongs to the global scope:

def myfunc():
  global x
  x = "fantastic"

myfunc()

print("Python is " + x)
