nchoices()

I guess I don't seem to understand the question. Any help is greatly appreciated

choices.py
import random
def nchoices(itr,intg):
    itr.append(intg)
    return random.choice(itr)

import random

def nchoices(itr, intg):
    return intg * list(random.choice(itr)) 

What you have to do get a random item from the iterable "itr", "intg" number of times

E.g nchoices("apple", 3) will get a random item from "apple" 3 times, so the output could be something like "pae" or "alp"
