New to python, starting from scratch
#2
The code is made to work with a specific amount of items in the list questions
The error happens because the list only has an item at index 0.
When it goes through the while True loop the first time n has the value 0.
questions[n] returns the first item of the list.
it continues to n += 1, n now has the value of 1.
It goes through the while True loop again and tries to call questions[n] to get the next item at index 1.
Because there isn't another item it gives the IndexError: list index out of range error.
