Hello! I have made a 'Guess the number game'. I am trying to write a get-hint(x,y): function that takes the users guess and the correct answers and compares them to each other, printing a specific letter if the numbers match, are wrong or match but are in the wrong position.

First issue: I'm not sure how to run through and match the numbers that are correct but in the wrong spot. Would it just be something like ? :

for i in guess:
    if i = question[i] 

Second issue:
I'm not sure how to get them to come together as one 3 digit hint.
I want them to print them like 'WXR' horizontally, not vertically. Should I using the results of the get_hint function by setting a variable or something ? and formatting them into a string with %?

If anyone could point me to the way I need to do this! I'm just stumped on how to make it work from here!

Thank you in advance !

This can be greatly simplified, example:
>>> list1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0] 
>>> list2 = [4, 8, 2, 0, 5]
>>> # same number, wrong postiion
... [b for a, b in zip(list1, list2) if b != a]
[4, 8, 2, 0]
>>> # same number same position
... [b for a, b in zip(list1, list2) if b == a]
[5]
>>>

Observations:

- random.randint(1, 1001) can return values like 1, 10, 100 or 1000. If you ask user to enter 3 digits then it's quite hard to win if random returns 1, 10 or 1000.

- you should be aware that function get_user_input() returns any value what can be converted to int. It will note enforce three digits rule. It can be a problem if you want give hints (user enters 123456 and correct number is 7, what hints there should be?)

Regarding your question - keep in mind that int object is not subscriptable.

Im Sorry, this is a little advanced for me. I understand that what you have included is running through and matching what I needed but I'm still not sure on how to make it work. Would I be setting list1 as my 'guess' variable and list2 as 'question' ?

I've put it in like this:
def get_hint(guess, question):
    list1 = str(guess)
    list2 = str(question)
    for a, b in zip(list1, list2):
        if b != a :
            print("X")
    else:
        for a, b in zip(list1, list2):
            if b == a:
                print("R")
But all it is doing is printing off :
X
X
X

no what I enter, whether I put in a matching number, an incorrect number or a wrong position number.
Is it not working because I've done with the 'for' and 'if' statement.

Thank you for you help. I am still a baby at this and want to make sure I understand what I am doing, not just coping stuff!

Before adding new features to your code you should check whether existing code delivers expected results.

It's unclear what are the rules of the game.

I reiterate my observations:

- 'question' value can be 1...1001 but you ask user to enter 3 digits. If random value is 1..99 or 1000-1001 it is not possible to win (FYI: random.randint: Return a random integer N such that a <= N <= b. Alias for randrange(a, b+1).)

- your wording of message to user: "Your aim is to guess the target, consisting of 3 digits between 0 - 9" is misleading. You generate int with value in range 1...1001 as value of 'question' but then ask enter three digits in peculiar way. Why don't just say: please enter number in range 1...1001 (or maybe 100...999). In current wording 010 seems legit input.

- you create 'question' value outside the game function. This means that if player chooses to continue playing the question value remains the same.

I misunderstood the original question.

I thought you were trying to show number of correct items in (guess history) list, as well as those in correct positions.
the example I showed (although not relevant now that I understand the question) was if you had a random list and a guess history list
as in a mastermind type of game, so example was:

Output:
random_list: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0] guesses: [4, 8, 2, 0, 5, ...] |____________ Correct Number, exact position

so all guesses are correct, but only one (5) is in the correct position, so

def show_correct_guess(random_list, guesses, exact=True):
    if exact:
        return [b for a, b in zip(random_list, guesses) if b == a]
    else:
        return [b for a, b in zip(random_list, guesses) if b != a]
would return [4, 8, 2, 0] if exact is False
and [5] if exact is True
