Hi! I'm stuck because I have no idea what I did wrong. Please help me!

The error message:
File "python", line 21
ship_row = random_row(board)
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

from random import randint

board = []

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

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

print "Let's play Battleship!"
print_board(board)

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

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

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
turn = int(0)
for turn in range(5):
    if turn < 4:
        print "Turn: ", turn + 1
    
        guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
        guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

        if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
            print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
            break
        else:
            if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
                print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
            elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
                print "You guessed that one already."
            else:
                print "You missed my battleship!"
                board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
                print print_board(board)
    
    else:
        print "Game Over"
        break

Hi @anishainas ,

Check your parentheses here ...

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