Struggling with a python code challenge

I‚Äôm working on the ‚Äúpull the trigger‚ÄĚ challenge and I keep getting an EOF error and it looks like it‚Äôs my input line that is causing issues. However, when I load my code in the playground I get the expected output (along with the error). Anyone have any ideas as to why this would be an issue? score = 100 attempt = 1 while attempt <= 4: print("what was the result") result = input() if result == "hit": score += 10 print(score) elif result == "miss": score -= 20 print(score) attempt += 1

Your code has two issues: 1. In the if block you need to add attempt += 1 2. If I remember correctly the task requires only the final score ad output. So the print statement should be outside the loop.

EOF error is because sololearn accepts all inputs in the first prompt (each input in a line) and then prints the output, Try run this code in another IDE, and I think it will work properly

Yeah if seems to work in the playground. Trying to figure out how to satisfy sololearn‚Äôs requirements so i can pass the challenge. But it‚Äôs good to know that it‚Äôs not flat out bad code ūüôā

Ah the final score. That makes sense. The examples they gave had the var += 1 statement at the very end so thsts what i did ūü§∑‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ

You can do it with a single use of attempt += 1 if you unindent it so it is executed independently of whether the if or the elif block is executed.
