Lab 4, Part 3: Buzzfeed Quiz Details
Continuing with the DC&G theme, we will break this program into individual functions. Note that these are suggestions, there are many different ways to divide the quiz into parts.
lab04/conditionals.py file, you are provided with the function called
askUserForAnswer which returns the integer corresponding to the user's choice.
Test this function in the Python console so you understand what it does.
In: askUserForAnswer() Select 1, 2 or 3: 1 Out: 1 In: askUserForAnswer() Select 1, 2 or 3: 2 Out: 2
Now, write a function called
firstQuestion() that prints a question followed by three answer options, e.g.
In: firstQuestion() Which food do you like the most? 1: artichokes 2: lettuce 3: kimchi
You can come up with your own questions/answers, just associate the #1 option with earth, the #2 option with water, and the #3 option with fire.
Note that this function does not need to prompt the user for their input, it simply needs to print the question and possible answers.
firstQuestion() is written and tested, write two additional question/answer functions (
Write a function called
determineElement that accepts three integers as parameters and returns a calculated element as a String (
In: determineElement(1, 1, 1) Out: 'earth' In: determineElement(2, 2, 2) Out: 'water' In: determineElement(1, 2, 3) Out: 'water' In: determineElement(3, 3, 3) Out: 'fire'
It's up to you to design the formula for how the elements are chosen. In the above example, we had programmed it so that if they chose 1 for all the answers, they were earth. If they chose 3 for all the answers they were fire. If they chose a mixture of 1,2,3 they were water.
But again, the formula is up to you to design as you like. Have fun with it!
Task 4d Glue the pieces together
Finally, write a function called
runQuiz that does the following:
- Shows the first question (using
- Prompts the user for their answer (using
- Repeats the above two steps for the second and third question
- Using the responses from the questions, determines the user's element (using
- Prints the resulting element
When you're done, test your quiz to make sure it works as expected.
