# What would be the mistake?

#1

It seems there is nothing wrong with the following code, however, when I run the code I receive "Make sure you print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." if the user guesses a row or column that is off the board." , in spite of the code actually prints "Oops, that's not even in the ocean." when I write input that is out of range.

``````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:
if guess_row not in range(5) or guess_col not in range(5):
print "Oops, that's not even the ocean."
else:
print 'You missed my battleship!'
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
print_board(board)``````

result:

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
Guess Row: 4
Guess Col: 7

Oops, that's not even the ocean.

Hi,
Try to type in between even and the:

Like:

print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."

I could not even think that would be an error. Thanks!
