My code will bring up the entire list for the fruit guesses. Can you please tell me where I have gone wrong?

import os import random import sys

make a list of words

words = [ "apple" "banana" "orange" "coconut" "strawberry" "lime" "grapefruit" "lemon" "kumquat" "blueberry" "melon" ]

def clear(): if os.name == "nt": os.system("cls") else: os.system("clear")

def draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word): clear()

print("Strikes: {}/7".format(len(bad_guesses)))
print('')

for letter in bad_guesses:
    print(letter, end=' ')
print('\n\n')

for letter in secret_word:
    if letter in good_guesses:
        print(letter, end=' ')
    else:
        print('_', end=' ')

print(' ')

def get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses): while True: guess = input("Guess a letter: ").lower()

        if len(guess) != 1:
            print("You can only guess a single letter!")
        elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
            print("You've already guessed that letter!")
        elif not guess.isalpha():
            print("You can only guess letters!")
        else:
            return guess

def play(done): clear() secret_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses = [] good_guesses = []

while True:
        draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word)
        guess = get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses)

        if guess in secret_word:
            good_guesses.append(guess)
            found = True
            for letter in secret_word:
                if letter not in good_guesses:
                    found = False
            if found:
                print("You win!")
                print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
                done = True
        else:
            bad_guesses.append(guess)
            if len(bad_guesses) == 7:
                draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word)
                print("You lost!")
                print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
                done = True

        if done:
            play_again = input("Play again? Y/n ").lower()
            if play_again != "n":
                    return play(done=False)
            else:
                    sys.exit

def welcome(): start = input("Press enter/return to start or Q to quit ").lower() if start == "q": print("Bye!") sys.exit() else: return True

print("Welcome to Letter Guess!")

done = False

while True: clear() welcome() play(done)

you need to seperate the strings in your list with a comma. words = [ "apple", "banana", "orange"]
