Why isn't this working?


#1





If I put something above 5, instead of printing "Oops, that's not even in the ocean.", "You missed my battleship!" is printed, and I get this error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 33, in
IndexError: list index 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

# Write your code below!
if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
else:
    print "You missed my battleship!"
    board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    print_board(board)
    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)

you seem to have some duplicate code, you have this twice:

    print "You missed my battleship!"
    board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    print_board(board)

one of them is correct, the other one is not, which one is which? Remove the wrong code
