Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok but I think you should print a word in blank or with some letters, if you run that code it should print this: _ p p _ e instead (for 'apple' word) of: _ pp_ e (This is what you need)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I see the problem: that when you are done this prints out spaces between letters, not the actual string that is required to recognize that the words are the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you guess all the letters it prints out getGuessedWord('hand', ['a','h','n','d']) h a n d which your isWordGuessed function probably finds different (depending on how you coded it) due to the spaces.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2having the comma after everything is where the spaces are coming from btw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're right! it does not do that. I had a similar problem, but I store the output in a list, and add it to ' ' (empty variable), so my output was a string '_ pp_ e', with spaces after the "_" and letters right nex to each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I did the same^ however I defined my whole function recursively, so the rest of mine is quite different

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I started doing that (recursively), but it was like 3 more lines so I just use a 'for'. You did it comparing frist word and an [i:] ?? I'm trying to improve my recursively, I made two hangman one is a mess, the other is recursively xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dont use print. start with a str  temp = '' then if ... add char to temp else add ' ' to temp return temp ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah something like that, actualy the list I mentioned is not important, after the for return temp, recursively is a simpler way though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This works fine on my machine shell, but not showing correct output in grader output window..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Maybe it's because the spaces between the letters, if the word is 'apple', it may write "_ p p _ e' instead of '_pp_e'.
