Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Exiting

What am I doing wrong in this code?

import sys

option = input("Play movie?") if option == "n" or "N": sys.exit()

else: print("Enjoy the show!")

firedoor.py
import sys

option = input("Play movie?")
if option == "n" or "N":
  sys.exit()

  else:
    print("Enjoy the show!")

Looks like you have a couple of issues:

  • Indentation is critically important in Python. For example, an else must line up with the corresponding if
  • When testing for more than one condition, you must use logical operators to combine individual tests
  • You can also use a case conversion function if you want to make a string comparison case-insensitive

I'll bet you can get it now, but if not... <button' onclick='$("#spoiler").slideDown("slow");$(this).remove()'>Press to Reveal Spoiler</button> <div id='spoiler' style='display:none'>


:warning: SPOILER ALERT


import sys

option = input("Play movie?").lower()
if option == "n":
  sys.exit()
else:
  print("Enjoy the show!")

</div>

THANKSS!
