This should be based on which version of Python you are using.
If you are using Python-2.7 then you need to give raw_input( ).
If you are using 3.6.0 then use only input().

I did not use python extensively but this is very basic question so I will try to answer.

raw_input( ) returns string always but input() function does not return string. input() function does not return string means it return integers, decimal values.
