# 13. Not Again - Error don't make sense

#1

Oops, try again. Did you remember to add the "You guessed that one already." message in your elif statement?

I create the "elif" according the exercice:
elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X":
print "You try this position"

But it dont accept. I created a loop "while", changed O for X, but the exercice dont see the elif maked. What is happening? I dont have idea.

``````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 "Linha: %d" %ship_row
print "Coluna: %d" %ship_col

# Escreva seu codigo abaixo!
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
else:
if guess_row not in range(5) or guess_col not in range(5):
print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X":
print "You try this position"
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
print_board(board)``````

The error message is quite verbal about the problem. You should print out `"You guessed that one already"`, not `"You try this position"`. That's all
