Question about Solution: Pig Latin

I carefully read the task - and even solved it in two ways (in C and Python), however, both of my solutions fail test # 3 without explaining the reason .... that is, I myself have to guess what’s there in some kind of test, which you came up with, could go wrong, and therefore fix something that would go wrong;) ... Your test should write an example of input, what went wrong ....... You (Dear the creators of this Task) can help me in this situation? Thanks.

It seems like the third case has a word with a character not in the range [a, z] and different from a blank space, so your code splits that word in two when it shouldn't. For example: Input: hello#world Output: ellohay#orldway Expected (?): ello#worldhay Change your first condition to if (c != ' '): # Not a blank space and everything should work correctly.

In C, the code is similar, only the output is not used immediately, but the char * array is being formed, and then it is printed.

Diego: yes - that’s how it goes, damn it, but something else is written in the assignment: Input Format A string of the sentence in English that you need to translate into Pig Latin. (no punctuation or capitalization)

perhaps in the description of the problem, speaking of words, is it meant with the exception of prepositions?

My code is shorter. Maybe this can also help you: def solve(s): y=[] s=s.split(" ") for i in s: i=i+i[0]+"ay" y.append("".join(i[1:])) return " ".join(y) print(solve(input()))

text = input() w=False fcw = '0' for c in text: if (c>='a' and c<='z'): if w == False: w = True fcw = c else: print(c,end="") else: if w == True: w = False print(fcw+"ay",end="") print(c,end="") if w == True: w = False print(fcw+"ay",end="")

Michail Getmanskiy your code seemed a bit complex to me. That's why I posted a different way to solve that problem.

//Using c++ check this out.. It works.. //#Daniel theProgrammer #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { string s, a, pig; getline(cin, s); for(int i = 0; s[i] != '\0'; i++){ a += s[i]; if(s[i+1] == ' ' || s[i+1] == '\0'){ a = a.substr(1) + a[0] + "ay"; pig += a + ' '; i++; a = ""; } } cout << pig; return 0; }
