Problem with if-elif-else statement

My program works except for when I add the else statement. Once I add the else statement in match_reply it only works for describe_planet_intent and no_match_intent. Can someone please explain

Welcome to the forums!

Remember that once a return statement executes, the function is immediately exited. Your loop in match_reply will only ever execute once because it will hit a return statement no matter what on the first iteration. Therefore, it doesn’t have the opportunity to check found_match against the second and third intents. How can you fix this?
