7.4.8 Keeping Count CodeHS Answers

We thoroughly check each answer to a question to provide you with the most correct answers. Found a mistake? Tell us about it through the REPORT button at the bottom of the page. Ctrl+F (Cmd+F) will help you a lot when searching through such a large set of questions.

The most common answer is:

def count_occurrences(word, character):
    counter = 0
    for checker in word:
        if checker == character:
            counter += 1
    return counter  # Make sure to return the count, not print it

# Correct the call to print the return value of the function
print(count_occurrences("banana", "a"))

This code defines a function count_occurrences that iterates over each character in word and increments a counter each time it matches the specified character. Finally, it returns the value of counter.

The corrected print statement outside the function call ensures that the result is displayed to the user, showing how many times “a” appears in “banana”, which is 3.
