# Why is my code not being accepted despite working fine?

#1

Code seems to run fine and does what the exercise tells me to do but
Codeacademy says "Oops, try again. Did you remember to print out turn + 1 each turn?" No errors are encountered by the interpreter. I don't understand why it's not accepting my code.

This is what should be in the interpreter (and is):

Let's play Battleship!
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
1
3
('Turn', 1)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 2
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 2)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 4
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 3)
Guess Row: 1
Guess Col: 1
You missed my battleship!
('Turn', 4)
Guess Row: 3
Guess Col: 2
You guessed that one already.
O O O O O
O X O O O
O O O O O
O O X O X
O O O O O
None

``````from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
for row in board:
print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"
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)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
turn = 0
for i in range(1,5):
turn = turn + 1
print("Turn", turn)
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
else:
if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0
or guess_col > 4):
print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
print "You guessed that one already."
else:
print "You missed my battleship!"
board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
print_board(board)``````

It would make sense if the iterator variable is `turn`. It is in the range(0,5), so will start at `0`

``````for turn in range(5):
print turn + 1``````

Now it will print `1` for the first, `2` for the second, and so on. For simplicity, do not add any more text to that statement. Just use it in the stripped down form shown above.
