<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>

My code looks right and I pass the exercise, I want to know why it shows all four turns instead of just one??

I feel I followed the instructions and I have passed the exercise.

This is what my console shows:

Let’s play Battleship!
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
4
0
Guess Row: 4
Guess Col: 2
You missed my battleship!
turn 1
turn 2
turn 3
turn 4
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O X O O
None

<What do you expect to happen instead?>

I feel like it should only show turn 1.

```python

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!"
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"
for turn in range(4):
print “turn” , turn + 1 # Print (turn + 1) here!
print_board(board)

<do not remove the three backticks above>

did you see these comments:

You didn’t place the loop correctly, place everything into the loop so the user gets multiply guesses and each guess is handled
