My code isn't working, it gives me this error message:

" File "python", line 37
else:
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax "

The else statement on line 37 is the last else statement in the code (the one inside another else statement).
I don't know what it's wrong, been searching but I don't see what's wrong. Can anybody help me please?

``````from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(0, 5):
board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
for row in board:
print " ".join(row)

print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

print ship_row
print ship_col

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print ("Congratulations! You sank my battleship!")
else:
print ("You missed my battleship!")
board[int(guess_row)][int(guess_col)] = 'X'
print print_board(board)
if guess_row not in range(5) or y not in range(5):
print ("Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
else:
print ("You missed my battleship!")
board[int(guess_row)][int(guess_col)] = 'X'
print print_board(board)``````

Missing parenthesis at end.

For this exercise we can use Python 2 syntax on print statements, but it is okay to use Python 3 syntax.

Oh daaamn, didn't saw that hahaha thank you so much!!

#4

I'm just interested: what's that y in your if statement? That could also make it not work, couldn't it?

#5

I'm guessing the OP caught this error, already. The one that still concerns me is this one...

Doesn't `print_board` already do the printing?
