need help with my function for p4 in pset 4:
for shift in range(28):
startpoint = start
switch = False
newtext= apply_shift(text[start: ], shift)
words = newtext.split()
for word in words:
if is_word(wordlist, word) == True:
startpoint = startpoint + len(word)
switch = True
if switch == True:
if startpoint == len(text):
return [(start, shift)]
else:
return [(start, shift)] + find_best_shifts(wordlist, text[0:start]+newtext, startpoint+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the hangman problem I think, if is the problem for the computer to find the best hand, you'll have to test each word, but before check the hand, so your range wouldn't be the 80K words.
