That is NO different from the useless crap you consistently give us!  Tell us EXACTLY WHAT YOU

x is a character (a one-element string).  range(10) is a list of ints.  A string will never 
match an int.  BTW, as it is used here, range(10) is for Py2, for Py3 it needs to be

Once again, find out what str(range(10)) actually is.  It is NOT what you think it is.  And I'll 
reiterate what everyone here keeps telling you:  USE THE INTERACTIVE MODE to see what really 
goes on.  If you keep resisting this you are making your understanding several hundred times 
more difficult.
