Test Run problem - Battleship



I passed all the lectures but if I put some numbers in for guess_row and col which are in the range of 5. My code prints "Oops, that is not even in the ocean!" every time. I guess it is just a small misstake, but I can't find it. Thanks for helping

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)


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

# Write your code below!
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print("Congratulations! You sank my battleship!")
    if guess_row is not range(5) or \
       guess_col is not range(5):
           print("Oops, that\'s not even in the ocean.")
    elif board[guess_row][guess_col] =="X":
        print("You guessed that one already.")
        print("You missed my battleship!")
        print print_board(board)

Edit: for everyone with the same problem i just used " if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4): " this worked out


to check if something is present in a list or string we can use in keyword

to check if something is not present in a list or string we can use not in

you use is keyword, which is not right


Look close at the: if geuss_row is not range(5) or... statement.


Thank you guys! Works
