You would use the "random" module from the standard
library. It has a randint() method that should do
the job. Read the docs for more.

Assigning to nrrandom? Is that just a variable
name? Have you read the tutorial, which covers
basic things like assignment?

Just choose a random number yourself, eg. nrrandom=17 (just kidding

import random

nrrandom = random.randint(0,20)

Assuming its inclusive..

>>> from random import randint
>>> nrrandom = randint(0,20)

Yes I know about assigning and all that. I just stated the name of the
variable so that people could easily explain how to create the random
number. I needed it to practice Python. I just finished making a number
guess program. I just finished it. It was much easier to do then I
thought it would be.

Based on these headers from your message, plus the fact that you
want to either check your computer clock for accuracy or return the time
machine to Guido...
