Goal #1: review the state capitals quizzer[edit]

(Estimated completion time: 5 - 10 minutes)

Download the state capitals quizzer demoed in the video:

  1. Download the script and save it to your Desktop. Be sure to save it as a .py file.
  2. Open the script in your text editor.
  3. Read through the script. Think about these questions:
    • Why do we use a dictionary to store the states and capitals?
    • What is the purpose of the variable i in the for loop?
    • What is the purpose of the input function?
    • Think about one way that you could extend the script to make it more useful. How would you make that change in code?
