# Guessing Game

Stan and Ollie are playing a guessing game. Stan thinks of a number between 1 and 10 and Ollie guesses what the number might be. After each guess, Stan indicates whether Ollie’s guess is too high, too low, or right on.

After playing several rounds, Ollie has become suspicious that Stan cheats; that is, that he changes the number between Ollie’s guesses. To prepare his case against Stan, Ollie has recorded a transcript of several games. You are to determine whether or not each transcript proves that Stan is cheating.

Standard input consists of several transcripts. Each transcript consists of a number of paired guesses and responses. A guess is a line containing single integer between 1 and 10, and a response is a line containing “too high”, “too low”, or “right on”. Each game ends with “right on”. A line containing 0 follows the last transcript.

For each game, output a line “Stan is dishonest” if Stan’s responses are inconsistent with the final guess and response. Otherwise, print “Stan may be honest”.

1. simple, however efficient. A lot of instances it is difficult to get that a??perfect balancea?? among usability and appearance. I must say that youa??ve done a exceptional task with this. Also, the blog masses quite fast for me on Web explore.

2. Good task for the group. Hold it up for every yeara??s winner. This is a excellent oppotunity for a lot more enhancement. Indeed, obtaining far better and much better is constantly the crucial. Just like my pal suggests on the truth about ab muscles, he just keeps obtaining much better.
