# Issue (possible bug?) with Challenge: Sweet scores

Hello everyone,

as a python-newb, I would like to ask for some support with one of the challenges in Khan Academy, where I can't figure out what exactly I'm doing wrong - to be specific, step 2 of the exercise.

The task was as follows:

_________________________________________________________________________Aiyana added another fruit type to her game - cherry cards!

Every pair of cherry cards scores 5 points. For example, 0 or 1 cherries scores 0 points, 2 or 3 cherries score 5 points, 4 or 5 cherries score 10 points, and so on.

Add a new function definition get_cherry_score() that takes one parameter, the number of cherry cards.

Fill in the function body to return the correct score for the number of cherries.

Remember the // operator. You can calculate the number of pairs by floor dividing the number of cards by 2. The function should work for any positive number of cherry cards - even 47!

_________________________________________________________________________The solution I entered was:

def get_banana_score(num_bananas):

"""Returns a player's score based on the number of banana cards.

Bananas are worth more in bunches.

"""

if num_bananas == 1:

return 1

elif num_bananas == 2:

return 4

elif num_bananas >= 3:

return 10

else:

return 0

def get_apple_score(num_apples, has_poison_apple):

"""Returns a player's score based on the number of apple cards.

The poison apple card turns the apple score negative.

"""

if has_poison_apple is True:

return num_apples * -2

else:

return num_apples * 2

def get_cherry_score(num_cherrys):

pairs = (num_cherrys // 2)

return pairs * 5

def get_score(bananas, apples, has_poison_apple, cherrys):

"""Returns a player's total score based on their cards of each type."""

banana_score = get_banana_score(bananas)

apple_score = get_apple_score(apples, has_poison_apple)

cherry_score = get_cherry_score(cherrys)

return banana_score + apple_score + cherry_score

# Calculate the final score for each player.

player1_score = get_score(3, 2, True, 2)

player2_score = get_score(1, 5, False, 47)

print("Scores: p1=" + str(player1_score) + ", p2=" + str(player2_score))

_________________________________________________________________________When testing the result with different values, everything seems to work; however, the challenge menu still states that there is some issue with the code, even though I checked online for possible problems, but for all intents & purposes the solution I entered should be correct & I couldn't find an example where - to my understanding - the result was incorrect.

Does anyone here maybe see where I went wrong?

Thanks in advance for anyone who bothered reading through^^
