Revealing the Hint

The second phase of the hint mechanism is called show_possible_matches. This function displays the word from the file (word_from_list) if it corresponds to the current configuration of the gameword.


  1. Define the show_possible_matches function with word_to_match as a parameter.
  2. Initialize a for loop to iterate through the elements in test_word_list.
  3. Append an element to the possible_matches list if hints_match returns True.
  4. Check if the possible_matches list is empty and set a corresponding condition.
