The error says:"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.". Also it prints the X at wrong position. Like if I enter row=3
and col=4, the X is marked at a completely different row and column. Also the nested if part isn't excecuted. Please tell me whats wrong with my code. This is my output:
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: 3
Guess Col: 4
2
0
You missed my battleship!
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O O
O O O O X
O O O O O
None


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

# Write your code below!
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 in the ocean."
    else:
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col]="X"
        print_board(board)


#2

the string printed needs to be an exact match, copy paste it from the instructions

our board is a list, lists are zero indexed based, this explains why the coordinates seem off (you start counting at one), you can compensate for this difference, but its not part of the exercise
