## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-32 with Solution

Write a python program to find heights of the top three building in descending order from eight given buildings.

Input:
0 ≤ height of building (integer) ≤ 10,000

Pictorial Presentation: Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````print("Input the heights of eight buildings:")
l = [int(input()) for i in range(8)]
print("Heights of the top three buildings:")
l = sorted(l)
print(*l[:4:-1], sep='\n')
``````

Sample Output:

```Input the heights of eight buildings:
25
35
15
16
30
45
37
39
Heights of the top three buildings:
45
39
37
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions

Example:

```def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None):
max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
result = []
for i in range(max_length):
result.append([
args[k][i] if i < len(args[k])
else fill_value for k in range(len(args))
])
return result
print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False]))
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False]))
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_'))
```

Output:

```[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
```
