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

print ship_row
print ship_col

if guess_row==ship_row and guess_col==ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship"
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
X=[guess_row,guess_col]
print print_board(board)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Add an else under the if we wrote in the previous step.
Print out "You missed my battleship!"
Set the list element at guess_row, guess_col to "X".
As the last line in your else statement, call print_board(board) again so you can see the "X".
Make sure to enter a col and row that is on the board!

PROBLEM:
i canĀ“t replace the O that is currently on the guess_row, guess_col index for X``````

The list is `board` and the list element is,

``board[guess_row][guess_col]``

We need to set that element to, `"X"`.
