    this is the get guessed word bit? have you tried printing this out with some trial entries? you should be able to see the problem

    Ok 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)

    @Gianko15 actually that's what I thought, but I just ran it and it does not...

    I 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

    if 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.

    having the comma after everything is where the spaces are coming from btw

    You'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.

    I did the same^ however I defined my whole function recursively, so the rest of mine is quite different

    I 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

    dont use print. start with a str - temp = '' then if ... add char to temp else add '- ' to temp return temp ok?

    yeah something like that, actualy the list I mentioned is not important, after the for return temp, recursively is a simpler way though.

    This works fine on my machine shell, but not showing correct output in grader output window..

    Maybe it's because the spaces between the letters, if the word is 'apple', it may write "_ p p _ e' instead of '_pp_e'.
