Battleship 12 - doesn't work, don't know why

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python/lessons/battleship/exercises/bad-aim?action=lesson_resume

Error message: “Make sure you print “Oops, that’s not even in the ocean.” if the user guesses a row or column that is off the board.”

Based on the code I wrote, it is not supposed to not work.

My code:



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)


print ship_row
print ship_col

guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row: "))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col: "))

range_col = len(board) - 1

for lst in board:
  range_row = len(lst) - 1

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

 


Thanks for your help


#2

string printed needs to be an exact match, full stop is missing after ocean. Copy paste the string from the instructions
