PostPosted: Sat Feb 07, 2004 4:18 pm   Post subject: (TURING) Urgent, need help on multiple choices..

Hey!! Sup people? ..

I need help badly.. and i'm so confused with the code i have.

(its a multiple choice question, and i'll show you the problem with it on the buttom)

code:


var answer:string
var counter:int:=0

        put "How many months are there in a year? "
        put " "
        put "a) 13        "
        put "b) 11        "
        put "c) 12        "
        put " "
for i:1..2
        put "Please enter your answer. (type a, b or c)"
        put " "
get answer
if answer = "c" or answer = "C" then
put " ---> Correct! Next Question."
counter:=counter+1
exit
else
put "Sorry, guess again"
end if
end for

%this is it!


The problem is, when the code is outputted. And the user can only guess twice, but on the 2nd wrong guess, it sas "Sorry, guess again" --> (the output)

How many months are there in a year?

a) 13
b) 11
c) 12

Please enter your answer. (type a, b or c)

a
Sorry, guess again
Please enter your answer. (type a, b or c)

b
Sorry, guess again

-------------------

the PROBLEM is --> it says "sorry guess again" twice!
i want it to say something like "Sorry, no more guesses --> next question!"

Can someone please help me, thanks -

    put " "
    get answer
    if answer = "c" or answer = "C" then
        put " ---> Correct! Next Question."
        counter := counter + 1
        exit
    else
        if counter2 = 0 then
            put "Sorry, guess again"
            counter2 := 1
        elsif counter2 = 1 then

or you could loop it. thats what I have done in the past for my cash register.

if the user enters an payment amount which is less then the subototal it asks for a new payment, enter wrong payments till the cows come home!

but then ofcourse for the counter to be right you just need to put this:

code:
put length(counter)-1


instead of the usual one:

code:
put counter

wouldn't it use 'strint'?

EDIT: After closer inspection.. nm

you should've used strint... have counter:=intstr(strint(counter)+1)
