I used the following code to solve the scrabble exercise:

def scrabble_score(word):
word = word.lower()
result = 0
for i in word:
result += score[i]


Which is shorter than the solution given. It makes me wonder now if my code is wrong or if I just found a shorter solution to the exercise.


I had the same solution, and now I’m also wondering.
