# A REal win break statement

#1

I am having problems with my code. It keeps saying my break statement is outside of the if statement but I dont see how that is . Here is my code:

``````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(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)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
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)
print_board(board)
if turn ==3:
print "Game Over"

for turn in range(4):
print "Turn",turn+1
break``````

its formatted now . It should be good

Error says:

SyntaxError: 'break' outside loop

Outside loop, not outside the `if` statement.

`break` statement breaks out of the loop (`for` or `while`) and that is why it must be inside the loop.

So now, is this `break` statement:

``````if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
break``````

inside the loop?
