In the past few lessons, we’ve learned about various aspects of Python programming. Now it’s time to put all those concepts together and build a simple Python application. This will provide you with hands-on experience and help cement your Python knowledge.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how different Python concepts fit together in a real-world application.
  • Gain experience in problem-solving and Python programming by building an application from scratch.

Project Overview: A Simple Quiz Application

We will build a simple quiz application. The application will do the following:

  • Present a multiple-choice quiz to the user.
  • Score the user’s responses.
  • Display the final score to the user at the end.
class Question:
   def __init__(self, prompt, answer):
       self.prompt = prompt
       self.answer = answer

question_prompts = [
   "What color are apples?\n(a) Red/Green\n(b) Purple\n(c) Orange\n",
   "What color are Bananas?\n(a) Teal\n(b) Magenta\n(c) Yellow\n",
   "What color are strawberries?\n(a) Yellow\n(b) Red\n(c) Blue\n",

questions = [
   Question(question_prompts[0], "a"),
   Question(question_prompts[1], "c"),
   Question(question_prompts[2], "b"),

def run_quiz(questions):
   score = 0
   for question in questions:
       answer = input(question.prompt)
       if answer == question.answer:
           score += 1
   print(f"You got {score}/{len(questions)} correct")



In this lesson, you’ve put the Python concepts you’ve learned to use by building a simple quiz application. This kind of hands-on experience is crucial in building your confidence and abilities as a Python programmer. Keep building more projects to improve and to keep your Python skills sharp.
