I wrote a code in python :

l = [8, 5, 4]

total = l[0] + l[1] 

print (total)

def count(a):
  total = 0
for i in a:
  total+= a[i]
return total
print (count(n))

but it has some error:

  File "main.py", line 11
    return total
SyntaxError: 'return' outside function

What is this error causing for?

Your are getting error bacuse U are returning some list or some function that does not exists in the file. The way a python index work is that it starts from 0 and the main point is it is muteable. So start your Index from 0 and return the list which really exists .

Problem: Please consider the following code: i = [1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13] j = [] k = 0 for l in i: j[k] = l k += 1 print j The output (Python 2.6.6 on Win 7 32-bit) is: > Traceback (most recent call last): > j[k] = l IndexError: list assignment index out of range I guess it's something simple I don't understand. Can someone clear it up?

Problem : I was playing and below error just popped up and it just did not close. Array index is out of range. [system.indexoutofrangeexception] details: no details I tried to restart the game and when I tried to boot the save it shows the error message again and when ... and the river is completely grey. I have been playing the game for more than 20 hrs. Still I hope the issue can be fixed.
