In my opinion, I think this result equals to 4, 4 and not 0, 3. Is my code wrong or my interpretation?


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) - 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

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

0,3 are the ship_row, ship_col ( 4, 4 is your guess )

Azazaz,

Thank you, I was confused thinking that the matrix will show the actual place of the ship but instead it shows my guess, right?


#4

no, it show you the actual place of the ship ( who is 0,3 are the ship_row, ship_col ) but your guess is ( 4,4)

if you wanna print you guess you should use variables guess_row ,guess_col
