Hello anyone could help me with this question I have been struggling with?

Create a random name generator for a new pet! Write a function that asks the user for 6 names that will be saved in a list. Then, write another function that randomly choose one of those names from the list. Then, in the main() function, print the name that was chosen. You must use the random library to achieve this.

What I have tried:

import random

def choose_random(temp_list):
return temp_list[random.randint(0,5)]

def input_function():
print("Enter Six Names: ")
for i in range(0,6):
return choose_random(lst)

def main():
print("The chosen name of the dog is: "+input_function())

if __name__ == "__main__":

With correct indentation, your code works fine.

1 solution

Start by learning Python: it is an unusual language in that indentation is significant - it determines what code is part of what.
So when you create a function, all the code in the body of the function must be indented to the same level (or greater) and that level of indentation cannot be zero.
So this makes a two line function:
def foo():
In your code, none of it is indented, so nobody can tell what is supposed to be part of the function and what isn't.

So fix that, then try again to see how well it works.
