10.Censor


#1



I have no idea what's wrong with my code. hope someone can help.


def censor(text,word):
    new_word = text.split(" ")
    for i in new_word:
        if i == word:
            i = "*" * len(i)
            return " ".join(new_word)
print censor("hey hey hey", "hey")


#2

i contains read only values from the list, any changes made to it don't persist

Also, a return keyword will cause a function end, in order for the function to end when a return keyword is reached in a loop, the loop will break

so, your loop breaks in its first iteration, this is not what you want


#3

intendation of return is wrong, it will return for each loop.
This can be done in 2 lines really, you need to use len() inside a str.replace(). This and your "Hint" should solve it.
