Write a program that reads in words entered by the user and checks whether: the word has at least 8 characters starts with a consonant has alternating consonants and vowels and the consonants are in decreasing alphabetical order. The program should loop reading additional words until the user enters an empty string. Note that you can check letters for alphabetical order using <.
Your program should work for words entered upper or lower case and must use a function is_alternating(word) that returns True if the word has the above pattern and False otherwise. You are welcome to use additional functions if you would like. Hint. Remember to write a loop that goes through each letter and check for the necessary conditions. Using indexing is important here as you need to compare letters in different positions.
Here is an example run of this program:
Enter a word: zayexiwo
The word 'zayexiwo' is alternating
Enter a word: zaYexiWov
The word 'zaYexiWov' is alternating
Enter a word: zaaexiWov
The word 'zaaexiWov' is not alternating
