We will try to help you understand your problems. But you are
responsible for fixing your program, not us.
There's a difference between a tutor and a contractor. A tutor helps
you to learn to do your job. A contractor does the job for you. A
tutor is not a contractor.
Can you describe what you mean by "doesn't work"? Do you see an error
message? What behavior do you think is wrong, and why?
I will point out a possible mistake that you are making a few times in
your program: I see the following:
if FirstChoice == 'Coke' or 'Pepsi' or 'Water': ...
I will try to paraphrase what Python will take as the meaning of this statement.
FirstChoice == 'Coke' is a true value,
or if 'Pepsi' is a true value,
or if 'Water' is a true value,
then do the following: ..."
Does this match what you are trying to do?
