    Try this version of your program:

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ()
    {
        char ans;
        int rows[4];
        int i, j, player,rowChosen, sticksChosen, sum;
        
        do
        {
            rows[0] = 0;
            rows[1] = 3;
            rows[2] = 5;
            rows[3] = 7;
            
            player =1;
            
    
            printf("\n\n");
            printf("\t\t******************************\t");
            printf("\n\t\t****WELCOME TO GAME OF NIM****\t\t\n");
            printf("\t\tErvin Ardiente & Orven Dumasig\t\n");
            printf("\t\t******************************\t\n\n");
    
            sum = rows[1] + rows[2] + rows[3];
    
            while(sum > 0)
            {
                for(i = 1; i <= 3; i++)

    You're welcome and do test that final program you posted. I don't believe anyone here actually plays "The Game of Nim", so it's up to you and your partner on the program.

    Your welcome.

    I hope I do - today is my first cricket match of the season!

    I noticed that in your code that you didn't move where the play's turns change to after the code checks to see if the player has lost -
    Fact - Beethoven wrote his first symphony in C
