Python pyglatin Check Yourself! 4/11


#1

Write an if statement that verifies that the string has characters.

Add an if statement that checks that len(original) is greater than zero. Don’t forget the : at the end of the if statement!
If the string actually has some characters in it, print the user’s word.
Otherwise (i.e. an else: statement), please print “empty”.
You’ll want to run your code multiple times, testing an empty string and a string with characters. When you’re confident your code works, continue to the next exercise.

print ‘Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!’

# Start coding here!
original = raw_input("Enter a word:")

if len(original) > 0:
  print (original)
  else: 
    print("empty")
 Why is my code wrong ?:frowning:

#2

if and else should have the same indent level, given else is after if (when if condition evaluates to false, else will run)
