Can any one help with solving this program it just doesnt take probability of the second team

Hint: this is not an assignment.
else:
if random() < probB:
scoreB = scoreB + 1
else:
serving == "A"
Same thing.
return scoreA, scoreB

While I was "stimulated" by reading this post, I think you mean "simulates"
here. :)
