Can anyone help?

This code runs a incomplete quiz game. I'm trying to count every time some one gets a question wrong or right, and it the end of game. Any thoughts?

spartan_name = ("JOHN")
it_false = ("FALSE")
continue_game = ("CONTINUE")

first_input = input("This is a Halo quiz game. If you type anything in this game make shure it is in all CAPS. Please type CONTINUE to go on with the game.\n")

if first_input == continue_game:
  print("Welcome to the game! first I would like too start of with a true or false question.")

  raise ValueError ("Sorry, that is incorect. Please try again. And remember to have all caps.")

answer = input("\nIs Spartan 117's team named: Feild Team Osiris\nTRUE or FALSE:     ")

if answer == it_false:

  print("Sorry, that is incorect. 1 wrong.")  #count fix <==========

second_input = input("\nNow to question 2. [push ENTER key]  ")  

answer_two = input("\nWhat is Spartan 117's real name?  ")
if answer_two == spartan_name:

  print("Sorry, that is incorect. Please try again. And remember to have all caps.")

It sounds like you just need to keep two running totals. You might start by setting them to 0:

got_right = 0
got_wrong = 0

Then, just increase the one that corresponds with the answer given:

if answer == it_false:
  got_right += 1   # add to total count
  got_wrong += 1   # add to total count (before print)
  print("Sorry, that is incorrect.", got_wrong, "wrong so far.")

Then you can print out both totals when the game is over.

Thanks man! Completely worked!
