Exercise 36 LPTHW


Here is my code for one of the functions I defined. I noticed that whether or not I use the while loop is not making a difference. I think that might be because in each of the else: , I make it jump back to the beginning of the function. How would I make the while loop actually come into play?
(I’ve currently put a # on each of the parts I didn’t use, which didn’t make a difference to when I run my code.

def san_diego():
    print("Good choice! The weather is great here.")
    print("Do you want to go to: Gaslamp or the beach?")
    #want_to = False

    #while True:
    choice = input("Enter your choice: ")

    if "Gaslamp" in choice:
        print("Tough luck. You drink too much and pass out!")
    elif "beach" in choice:
        print("Great choice.You now have two more options.")
        print("Do you want to build a bornfire or play in the water?")
        #want_to = True

        choose = input("Your choice >>> ")

        if choose == "bornfire":
            print("You enjoy hot cocoa!")
        elif choose == "water":
            print("I did not get that. Start over.")
        print("Error. Try again.")

Please give me some suggestions. Thank you!


You forgot the forward slash on the last [code] to close the tag and format the code.

For the while tool to come into play, think about ‘returning false’ somewhere to break the loop.


choice = input(“> “)
while True: # the loop is started 

    if choice < 5:
        print(“Small numbers”)
        print(“Game over”)
        return false # breaks the while true statement 


Yes, so your logic always calls some other function to exit this one. For the while loop to have any impact you’d have to make the else: not call san_diego(). Then it will go back to the top of the loop instead.
