Problem type

Write a program that will keep score for a simple two-player game, played with a deck of cards. There are cards in the deck; four of each of 13 possible names: two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, jack, queen, king, ace. The cards labelled jack, queen, king, and ace are collectively known as high cards.

The deck is shuffled and placed face-down on the table. Player A turns over the top card and places it on a pile; then player B turns over the top card and places it on the pile. A and B alternate until the deck is exhausted. The game is scored as follows:

• If a player turns over an ace, with at least cards remaining to be turned over, and none of the next cards is a high card, that player scores points
• If a player turns over a king, with at least cards remaining to be turned over, and none of the next cards is a high card, that player scores points
• If a player turns over a queen, with at least cards remaining to be turned over, and none of the next cards is a high card, that player scores points
• If a player turns over a jack, with at least card remaining to be turned over, and the next card is not a high card, that player scores point

#### Input Specification

The input will contain lines. Each line will contain the name of a card in the deck, in lowercase letters. The first line denotes the first card to be turned over; the next line the next card; and so on.

#### Output Specification

Whenever a player scores, print Player X scores n point(s). where X is the name of the player (A or B) and is the number of points scored (1, 2, 3, or 4). At the end of the game, print the total score for each player, on two lines:

Player A: n point(s).
Player B: m point(s).

bruh I went through the extra effort of deciding point or points depending on how many points, and then found out that you just need point(s)
