So far we have worked with input in the form of using the arrow keys, mouse movement and mouse clicks. In this activity we will learn how to get input in the form of text and how to work with that input.

 

Use of variables

Variables are very useful to keep values stored in your program. We will be using one variable to keep a track of the score. Every correct answer will get one point added to the score.

The other variable keeps a count of the apples. This variable is hidden so that the user has to input the answer for the number of apples
