PYTHON NOTES
1. What is Python?
 Python is a high-levellanguage like other high-level
language such as Java, C++, PHP, Ruby, Basic and Perl.
 Python is an object-orientedprogramming language.
 Python provides security.
 The CPU understands a language which is called as
Machine Language.
 Machinelanguage is very complex and very
troublesome to write because it is represented all in
zero’s and one’s.
 The actualhardware inside CPU does not understand
any of these high-level languages.
2. Program:
 A Program can be defined as a set of instructions
given to a computer to achieve any objective.
 Instructions can be given to a computer by writing
programs.
 Tasks can be automated by giving instructionsto the
computers.
3. Defining Computer Hardware:
Components:
 CPU: It helpsin processing the instructions.
 Main Memory: It provides storage support during
execution of any program in computer Eg: RAM.
 The Secondary Memory: It helps to store the data
permanently inside the computer. Eg: Disk drives,
flash memory, DVD and CD.
 The Input and Output Devices:
o Input Devices helps users to generate any
command or input any data.
o Output Device helps user to get output from
computer. Eg: Mouse, Printer, Keyboard,
Monitoretc.
4. Constants and Variables:
 Variables can have any name, but Python reserved
words cannot be used.
 A variable provides a named storage that the
program can manipulate.
 Variablesare named memory locationused to store
data in program which keeps on changing during
execution.
 Programmers can decide the names of the variables.
 Fixed values used in programs such as numbers,
letters and strings are called “Constants”.
 Values of constants never change during program
execution.
5. Variable NamingConventions:
 Must start with a letter or an underscore “_”.
 Must consist of a letters, numbers and underscores.
 It is a case sensitive.
 Eg: First_Name, Age, Num1.
 Cannot be used: 1_hello, @hello, h123#2, -abc.
 Note: You cannot use reserved words for variable
names and identifiers.
6. Mnemonic Variable Names:
 Use simple rules of variable naming and avoid
reserved words.
 While using simple rules, we have a lot of choice for
variablenaming.
 Initiallythis choice can be confusing either in reading
or writing the program.
 The followingtwo programs are identicalin terms of
what they accomplish,but very different when you
read and try to understand them:
Eg 1: a=35.0
b=12.50
c=a*b
print(c)
O/P: 437.5
Eg 2: hours=35.0
rate=12.50
pay=hours*rate
print(pay)
O/P: 437.5
7. Reserved Words in Python:
 and, as, assert, break, class, continue,def, del, elif, else,
except, exec, finally, for, from, global, if, import, in, is ,
lambda,not, or, pass, print, raise, return, try, while,
with, yield.
8. Compilersand Interpreters:
 Compiler is a computer program(or a set of programs)
that transforms source code written in a programming
language into another computer language.
 Interpreters reads the source code of the program, line
by line, passes the source code, and interprets the
instructions.
9. Python language:
 The Python language acts as an intermediator
between the end user and the programmer.
 Python script will have .py extensions.
 Every one line can be a program in Python.
10. Types of errors:
 A syntax error: It occurs when the “grammar” rules of
Python are violated.
 A logic error:It occurs when the program hasgood
syntax but there is a mistake in the order of the
statements.
Eg:
o Using wrong variablename.
o Making a mistake in a Boolean
expression.
o Indenting a block to the wrong level.
o Using integer divisioninstead of
floating-pointdivision.
 A Semantic error: It occurs when the description
of the steps to take is syntacticallyperfect, but
the program does not do what it was intended
to do.
11. Difference between Programmersand Users:
 Programmers use software developmenttools
availablein a computer to developsoftware
for the computer.
 A programmer may write the program to
automate the task for himself or for any other
client.
 After learning programming language, the
programmer can developthe software that can
be utilized by end users.
 Usersuse the tools availablein a computer like
word processor, spreadsheet etc., whereas
programmers learn the computer language and
develop these tools.
12. Building blocks of a Program:
These are some of the conceptual patterns that are used
to construct a program:
 Input: Input will come from the user typing data
on the keyboard.
 Output: Display the results of the program on a
screen or store them in a file.
 Sequential Execution: Perform statements one
after another in the order in which they are
encountered in the script.
 Conditional Execution: Checks for certain
conditionsand then execute or skip a sequence
of statements.
 Repeated Execution: Perform some set of
statements repeatedly,usually with some
variation.
 Reuse: Write a set of instructionsonce then
reuse those instructionsin the program.
13. Various Components of programmingstatements:
 Variable.
 Operator.
 Constant.
 Reserved Words.
14. Operators and its Precedence:
 Operators are used to manipulatethe values of
operands.
 There are various types of operators used in
program:
o Comparison (relational)operators.
o Assignment operators.
o Logical operators.
15. Arithmetic Operators:
 Are the symbols that are used to perform arithmetic
operationson operands.
Types of Arithmetic operators:
o + ,- ,* ,/ ,%.
16. Comparison Operators:
 Compares the values of an operandsand decide the
relation among them.
 They are also called as Relational Operators.
Types of ComparisonOperators:
o < - less than.
o >- greater than.
o <= - less than equal to.
o >= - greater than equal to.
o == - equal to.
o != - not equalto.
17. Logical Operators:
 Are used to evaluateexpressions and return a
Booleanvalue.
Types of Logical Operators:
o x && y: Performs a logical AND of the two
operands.
o x || y: Performs a logical OR of the two
operands.
o ! x: Performs a logical NOT of the operand.
18. Logical Operators (Contd..):
 There are three logicaloperators and, or and not.
 The semantics of these operators is similarto their
meaning in English.
 Eg: x>0 and x<10 (is true only if x is greater than 0
and less than 10).
 n %2==0 or n % 3==0(is true if either of the
conditionis true).
 The not operator negates a Boolean expression.
 Eg: not(x>y) is true if x>y is false.
19. Operator Precedence:
 When we use multipleoperators in an expression,
program must know which operator to execute first.
This is called as “Operator Precedence”.
 The followingexpression multipleoperators but they
will execute as per precedence rule:
o X=1+2*3-4/5**6.
 Eg 1: b=10, a=5, b%a O/P: 0.
 Eg 2: b=10, a=5, b%a==5 O/P: False.
20. Highest Precedence rule to Lowest Precedence rule:
 Parentheses are alwaysrespected hence given first
priority.
 Exponentiation (raiseto a power).
 Multiplication,Divisionand Remainder.
 Additionand Subtraction.
 Left to Right.
 Ie: Parentheses
Power
Multiplication
Addition
Left to Right
21. Comments:
 Comments helps in getting description aboutthe
code for future reference.
 In Python, Comment starts with # symbol.
 Eg: # compute the percentage of the hour that has
elapsed percentage = (minute*100)/60.
 In the above case, the comment appearson a line by
itself. Comments can also be put at the end of a line.
 Percentage = (minute*100)/60.
# - Percentage of an hour.
22. Functions:
 In the context programming, defining a function
means declaring the elements of its structure.
 The followingsyntax can be used to define a
function:
 Syntax:
def function_name(parameters):
function_body
return [value].
 A function is a named sequence of statement
that performs an operation.
 After defining, the function can be executed by
calling it.
23. Built-in Functions:
 Python provides a number of important built-in
functionsthat can be used without needing to
provide the function definition.
 abs(), divmod(), str(), sum(), super(), int(), eval(), bin(),
bool(), file(), filter(), format(), type().
 Math module: It provides functions for specialized
mathematicaloperations.
24. Conditional Execution:
 There are situationswhere an action performed
based on a condition.This is known as “Conditional
Execution”.
 The variousconditional constructsare implemented
using
o If statement.
o If else statement.
o Chainedstatement.
o Nested statement.
25. If statement:
 Containsa logicalexpression using which data is
compared and a decisionis made based on the result
of comparison.
 Syntax: if condition:
action
26. Chained Conditions:
 Elif statement: Allows to heck multiple expressions
for TRUE and execute a block of code as soon as one
of the conditionsevaluatesto TRUE.
 Nested Conditions: There may be a situationwhen
there is need to check for another conditionresolves
to true. In such a situation,the nested if construct is
used.
27. Loop Pattern:
 Loops are generally used to:
o Iterate a list of items.
o View content of a file.
o Find the largest and smallest data.
 There are two types of loops:
o Infinite loops.
o Definite loops.
28. Infinite loops:
 Sequence of instructionsin a computer program
which loops endlessly.
 Also known as endless loop or unproductive loop.
 Solutionto an infiniteloop is using break statement.
29. Break and Continue Statement:
 The break statement is used to exit from the loop.
 The break statement prevents the execution of the
remaining loop.
 The Continue Statement is used to skip all the
subsequent instructions and take the control back to
the loop.
30. For loop:
 Used to execute a block of statements for a specific
number of times.
 Used to construct a definite loop.
 Syntax: for<destination>in <source>
statements
print <destination>
31. While loop:
 Is used to execute a set of instructionsfor a
specified number of times until the condition
becomes False.
 Syntax: while(condition)
Executes code
exit.
32. Workingof While loop:
 Evaluatethe condition,yieldingTrue of False.
 If the conditionis false, exit the while statement and
continue execution at next statement.
 If the conditionis true, execute the body and then go
back to step 1.
33. String:
 A string is a sequence of characters.
 Single quotes or doublequotes are used to represent
strings.
 There are some special operators used in string.
34. Special String Operators:
 Concatenation (+): Adds values on either side of the
operator.
 Repetition (*): Creates new strings, concatenating
multiplecopies of the same string.
 Slice ([]): Gives the character from the given index.
 Range Slice ([:]): Gives the character from the given
range.
 Membership (in): Returns True if a character exists in
the given string.
 Membership (not in): Returns True if a character
does not exists in the given string.
 Some of the built-inString Methodsare as follows:
o Capitalize().
o isupper().
o istitle().
o len(string).
o lower()
o Istrip().
o upper().
35. Format Operator:
 “%” operator allowsto construct strings, replacing
parts of the strings with the data stored in variables.
 “%” operatorwill work as modulusoperator for
strings.
 “%” operatorworks as a format operator if the
operand is string.
36. Exception Handling:
 An Exception is an event, which occurs during the
execution of a program that stops the normal flow of
the program’s instructions.
 When Python script raises exception it must either
handleor terminate.
 Exceptionsare handledusing the try and except
keywords.
 Syntax:
try
//Code
except Exception 1:
//error message
except Exception 2:
//error message
else:
//success message
37. List:
 Most versatile datatypeavailablein python.
 Defined as a sequence of values.
 Holds values between square brackets separated by
commas.
 Holds Homogenousset of items.
 Indices start at 0.
 Lists are Mutable.
38. List Functions:
 sum( ): Using this function, we can add elements of
the list. It will work only with the numbers.
 min( ): Using this function, we can find the minimum
value from the list.
 max( ): Using this function, we can find the maximum
value from the list.
 len( ): Using this function, we can find the number of
elements in the list.
39. Dictionary:
 It is a “bag” of values, each with its own label.
 It containsthe values in the form of key-value pair.
 Every value in Dictionaryis associated with a key.
40. Characteristics of Dictionary:
 Dictionaries are Python’s most powerful data
collection.
 Dictionariesallows us to do fast database-like
operationsin Python.
 Dictionarieshave different names in different
languages.
o Associative Arrays- Perl/PHP.
o Properties or Map or HashMap- Java.
o Property Bag- C#/ .NET.
 DictionaryKeys can be of any Python data type.
Because keys are used for indexing, they should be
immutable.
 DictionaryValues can be of any Python data type.
Values can be mutable or immutable.
41. Difference between Lists and Dictionary:
LIST DICTIONARY
List is a list of values.
Starting from zero.
It is an index of words and
each of them has a
definition.
We can add the element
index wise.
Element can be added in
Dictionaryin the form of
key-value pair.
42. Tuples:
 A Tuple is an immutableList.
 A Tuple stores values, similarto a List, but uses
different syntax.
 A Tuple cannot be changed once it is created.
 Tuple uses parentheses, whereas lists use square
brackets.
 A Tuples is a sequence of immutablePython objects.
43. Features of Tuples:
 Tuples are more efficient.
 Tuples are faster than Lists.
 Tuples are converted into Lists, and vice-versa.
 Tuples are used in String Formatting.
 Note: We cannot perform Add, Delete and Search
operationson Tuples.
44. Operations which can be performed on Tuples:
 You can’t add elements on tuple. Tuples have no
appendor extend method.
 You can’t remove elements from a tuple. Tuples have
no remove or pop method.
 You can’t find elements in a tuple. Tuples have no
index method.
 You can however, check if an element exist in the
tuple.
45. Creating Tuples:
 Creating a Tuple is as simple assigning values
separated with commas.
 Optionally,you can put these comma-separated
values between parentheses also.
 Eg: # Zero-element tuple.
a= ( )
# One-element tuple.
b= (“one”,)
# Two-element tuple.
c= (“one”,”two”)
46. Updating Tuples:
 Tuples are immutable.
 An immutableobject cannot be changed once it is
created it alwaysremain the same.
 The values of Tuple element cannot be updatedor
changed.
 Portions of existing tuples can be used to create new
tuples.
47. Deleting Tuples:
 Removing individual Tupleelements is not possible.
 “del” statement is used to remove an entire Tuples.
 It is possible to merge two Tuples.
 Tuples can be reassigned with different values.

  • 1. PYTHON NOTES 1. What is Python?  Python is a high-levellanguage like other high-level language such as Java, C++, PHP, Ruby, Basic and Perl.  Python is an object-orientedprogramming language.  Python provides security.  The CPU understands a language which is called as Machine Language.  Machinelanguage is very complex and very troublesome to write because it is represented all in zero’s and one’s.  The actualhardware inside CPU does not understand any of these high-level languages. 2. Program:  A Program can be defined as a set of instructions given to a computer to achieve any objective.  Instructions can be given to a computer by writing programs.  Tasks can be automated by giving instructionsto the computers.
  • 2. 3. Defining Computer Hardware: Components:  CPU: It helpsin processing the instructions.  Main Memory: It provides storage support during execution of any program in computer Eg: RAM.  The Secondary Memory: It helps to store the data permanently inside the computer. Eg: Disk drives, flash memory, DVD and CD.  The Input and Output Devices: o Input Devices helps users to generate any command or input any data. o Output Device helps user to get output from computer. Eg: Mouse, Printer, Keyboard, Monitoretc. 4. Constants and Variables:  Variables can have any name, but Python reserved words cannot be used.  A variable provides a named storage that the program can manipulate.
  • 3.  Variablesare named memory locationused to store data in program which keeps on changing during execution.  Programmers can decide the names of the variables.  Fixed values used in programs such as numbers, letters and strings are called “Constants”.  Values of constants never change during program execution. 5. Variable NamingConventions:  Must start with a letter or an underscore “_”.  Must consist of a letters, numbers and underscores.  It is a case sensitive.  Eg: First_Name, Age, Num1.  Cannot be used: 1_hello, @hello, h123#2, -abc.  Note: You cannot use reserved words for variable names and identifiers. 6. Mnemonic Variable Names:  Use simple rules of variable naming and avoid reserved words.  While using simple rules, we have a lot of choice for variablenaming.
  • 4.  Initiallythis choice can be confusing either in reading or writing the program.  The followingtwo programs are identicalin terms of what they accomplish,but very different when you read and try to understand them: Eg 1: a=35.0 b=12.50 c=a*b print(c) O/P: 437.5 Eg 2: hours=35.0 rate=12.50 pay=hours*rate print(pay) O/P: 437.5 7. Reserved Words in Python:  and, as, assert, break, class, continue,def, del, elif, else, except, exec, finally, for, from, global, if, import, in, is , lambda,not, or, pass, print, raise, return, try, while, with, yield.
  • 5. 8. Compilersand Interpreters:  Compiler is a computer program(or a set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language into another computer language.  Interpreters reads the source code of the program, line by line, passes the source code, and interprets the instructions. 9. Python language:  The Python language acts as an intermediator between the end user and the programmer.  Python script will have .py extensions.  Every one line can be a program in Python. 10. Types of errors:  A syntax error: It occurs when the “grammar” rules of Python are violated.  A logic error:It occurs when the program hasgood syntax but there is a mistake in the order of the statements. Eg: o Using wrong variablename.
  • 6. o Making a mistake in a Boolean expression. o Indenting a block to the wrong level. o Using integer divisioninstead of floating-pointdivision.  A Semantic error: It occurs when the description of the steps to take is syntacticallyperfect, but the program does not do what it was intended to do. 11. Difference between Programmersand Users:  Programmers use software developmenttools availablein a computer to developsoftware for the computer.  A programmer may write the program to automate the task for himself or for any other client.  After learning programming language, the programmer can developthe software that can be utilized by end users.  Usersuse the tools availablein a computer like word processor, spreadsheet etc., whereas programmers learn the computer language and develop these tools.
  • 7. 12. Building blocks of a Program: These are some of the conceptual patterns that are used to construct a program:  Input: Input will come from the user typing data on the keyboard.  Output: Display the results of the program on a screen or store them in a file.  Sequential Execution: Perform statements one after another in the order in which they are encountered in the script.  Conditional Execution: Checks for certain conditionsand then execute or skip a sequence of statements.  Repeated Execution: Perform some set of statements repeatedly,usually with some variation.  Reuse: Write a set of instructionsonce then reuse those instructionsin the program. 13. Various Components of programmingstatements:  Variable.  Operator.  Constant.
  • 8.  Reserved Words. 14. Operators and its Precedence:  Operators are used to manipulatethe values of operands.  There are various types of operators used in program: o Comparison (relational)operators. o Assignment operators. o Logical operators. 15. Arithmetic Operators:  Are the symbols that are used to perform arithmetic operationson operands. Types of Arithmetic operators: o + ,- ,* ,/ ,%. 16. Comparison Operators:  Compares the values of an operandsand decide the relation among them.  They are also called as Relational Operators.
  • 9. Types of ComparisonOperators: o < - less than. o >- greater than. o <= - less than equal to. o >= - greater than equal to. o == - equal to. o != - not equalto. 17. Logical Operators:  Are used to evaluateexpressions and return a Booleanvalue. Types of Logical Operators: o x && y: Performs a logical AND of the two operands. o x || y: Performs a logical OR of the two operands. o ! x: Performs a logical NOT of the operand. 18. Logical Operators (Contd..):  There are three logicaloperators and, or and not.
  • 10.  The semantics of these operators is similarto their meaning in English.  Eg: x>0 and x<10 (is true only if x is greater than 0 and less than 10).  n %2==0 or n % 3==0(is true if either of the conditionis true).  The not operator negates a Boolean expression.  Eg: not(x>y) is true if x>y is false. 19. Operator Precedence:  When we use multipleoperators in an expression, program must know which operator to execute first. This is called as “Operator Precedence”.  The followingexpression multipleoperators but they will execute as per precedence rule: o X=1+2*3-4/5**6.  Eg 1: b=10, a=5, b%a O/P: 0.  Eg 2: b=10, a=5, b%a==5 O/P: False. 20. Highest Precedence rule to Lowest Precedence rule:  Parentheses are alwaysrespected hence given first priority.  Exponentiation (raiseto a power).
  • 11.  Multiplication,Divisionand Remainder.  Additionand Subtraction.  Left to Right.  Ie: Parentheses Power Multiplication Addition Left to Right 21. Comments:  Comments helps in getting description aboutthe code for future reference.  In Python, Comment starts with # symbol.  Eg: # compute the percentage of the hour that has elapsed percentage = (minute*100)/60.  In the above case, the comment appearson a line by itself. Comments can also be put at the end of a line.  Percentage = (minute*100)/60. # - Percentage of an hour. 22. Functions:  In the context programming, defining a function means declaring the elements of its structure.
  • 12.  The followingsyntax can be used to define a function:  Syntax: def function_name(parameters): function_body return [value].  A function is a named sequence of statement that performs an operation.  After defining, the function can be executed by calling it. 23. Built-in Functions:  Python provides a number of important built-in functionsthat can be used without needing to provide the function definition.  abs(), divmod(), str(), sum(), super(), int(), eval(), bin(), bool(), file(), filter(), format(), type().  Math module: It provides functions for specialized mathematicaloperations. 24. Conditional Execution:
  • 13.  There are situationswhere an action performed based on a condition.This is known as “Conditional Execution”.  The variousconditional constructsare implemented using o If statement. o If else statement. o Chainedstatement. o Nested statement. 25. If statement:  Containsa logicalexpression using which data is compared and a decisionis made based on the result of comparison.  Syntax: if condition: action 26. Chained Conditions:  Elif statement: Allows to heck multiple expressions for TRUE and execute a block of code as soon as one of the conditionsevaluatesto TRUE.  Nested Conditions: There may be a situationwhen there is need to check for another conditionresolves
  • 14. to true. In such a situation,the nested if construct is used. 27. Loop Pattern:  Loops are generally used to: o Iterate a list of items. o View content of a file. o Find the largest and smallest data.  There are two types of loops: o Infinite loops. o Definite loops. 28. Infinite loops:  Sequence of instructionsin a computer program which loops endlessly.  Also known as endless loop or unproductive loop.  Solutionto an infiniteloop is using break statement. 29. Break and Continue Statement:  The break statement is used to exit from the loop.  The break statement prevents the execution of the remaining loop.
  • 15.  The Continue Statement is used to skip all the subsequent instructions and take the control back to the loop. 30. For loop:  Used to execute a block of statements for a specific number of times.  Used to construct a definite loop.  Syntax: for<destination>in <source> statements print <destination> 31. While loop:  Is used to execute a set of instructionsfor a specified number of times until the condition becomes False.  Syntax: while(condition) Executes code exit. 32. Workingof While loop:  Evaluatethe condition,yieldingTrue of False.
  • 16.  If the conditionis false, exit the while statement and continue execution at next statement.  If the conditionis true, execute the body and then go back to step 1. 33. String:  A string is a sequence of characters.  Single quotes or doublequotes are used to represent strings.  There are some special operators used in string. 34. Special String Operators:  Concatenation (+): Adds values on either side of the operator.  Repetition (*): Creates new strings, concatenating multiplecopies of the same string.  Slice ([]): Gives the character from the given index.  Range Slice ([:]): Gives the character from the given range.  Membership (in): Returns True if a character exists in the given string.  Membership (not in): Returns True if a character does not exists in the given string.  Some of the built-inString Methodsare as follows:
  • 17. o Capitalize(). o isupper(). o istitle(). o len(string). o lower() o Istrip(). o upper(). 35. Format Operator:  “%” operator allowsto construct strings, replacing parts of the strings with the data stored in variables.  “%” operatorwill work as modulusoperator for strings.  “%” operatorworks as a format operator if the operand is string. 36. Exception Handling:  An Exception is an event, which occurs during the execution of a program that stops the normal flow of the program’s instructions.  When Python script raises exception it must either handleor terminate.  Exceptionsare handledusing the try and except keywords.  Syntax:
  • 18. try //Code except Exception 1: //error message except Exception 2: //error message else: //success message 37. List:  Most versatile datatypeavailablein python.  Defined as a sequence of values.  Holds values between square brackets separated by commas.  Holds Homogenousset of items.  Indices start at 0.  Lists are Mutable. 38. List Functions:  sum( ): Using this function, we can add elements of the list. It will work only with the numbers.  min( ): Using this function, we can find the minimum value from the list.
  • 19.  max( ): Using this function, we can find the maximum value from the list.  len( ): Using this function, we can find the number of elements in the list. 39. Dictionary:  It is a “bag” of values, each with its own label.  It containsthe values in the form of key-value pair.  Every value in Dictionaryis associated with a key. 40. Characteristics of Dictionary:  Dictionaries are Python’s most powerful data collection.  Dictionariesallows us to do fast database-like operationsin Python.  Dictionarieshave different names in different languages. o Associative Arrays- Perl/PHP. o Properties or Map or HashMap- Java. o Property Bag- C#/ .NET.  DictionaryKeys can be of any Python data type. Because keys are used for indexing, they should be immutable.
  • 20.  DictionaryValues can be of any Python data type. Values can be mutable or immutable. 41. Difference between Lists and Dictionary: LIST DICTIONARY List is a list of values. Starting from zero. It is an index of words and each of them has a definition. We can add the element index wise. Element can be added in Dictionaryin the form of key-value pair. 42. Tuples:  A Tuple is an immutableList.  A Tuple stores values, similarto a List, but uses different syntax.  A Tuple cannot be changed once it is created.  Tuple uses parentheses, whereas lists use square brackets.  A Tuples is a sequence of immutablePython objects. 43. Features of Tuples:  Tuples are more efficient.  Tuples are faster than Lists.
  • 21.  Tuples are converted into Lists, and vice-versa.  Tuples are used in String Formatting.  Note: We cannot perform Add, Delete and Search operationson Tuples. 44. Operations which can be performed on Tuples:  You can’t add elements on tuple. Tuples have no appendor extend method.  You can’t remove elements from a tuple. Tuples have no remove or pop method.  You can’t find elements in a tuple. Tuples have no index method.  You can however, check if an element exist in the tuple. 45. Creating Tuples:  Creating a Tuple is as simple assigning values separated with commas.  Optionally,you can put these comma-separated values between parentheses also.  Eg: # Zero-element tuple. a= ( ) # One-element tuple. b= (“one”,)
  • 22. # Two-element tuple. c= (“one”,”two”) 46. Updating Tuples:  Tuples are immutable.  An immutableobject cannot be changed once it is created it alwaysremain the same.  The values of Tuple element cannot be updatedor changed.  Portions of existing tuples can be used to create new tuples. 47. Deleting Tuples:  Removing individual Tupleelements is not possible.  “del” statement is used to remove an entire Tuples.  It is possible to merge two Tuples.  Tuples can be reassigned with different values.
