# Python: Get the last day of a specified year and month

## Python Datetime: Exercise-21 with Solution

Write a Python program to get the last day of a specified year and month.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````# Import the calendar module
import calendar

# Define the year and month for which we want to find the number of days
year = 2015
month = 2

# Use the monthrange() function from the calendar module to get the number of days in the specified month
# The [1] index of the returned tuple contains the number of days in the month
print(calendar.monthrange(year, month)[1])
```
```

Output:

```28
```

Explanation:

In the exercise above,

• The code imports the "calendar" module.
• Define Year and Month:
• It defines variables 'year' and 'month' with the values 2015 and 2, respectively. These represent the year and month for which we want to find the number of days.
• Calculating the number of days in the month:
• It uses the "monthrange()" function from the "calendar" module to get information about the specified month (month) in the specified year (year).
• The "monthrange()" function returns a tuple containing two values:
• The first value is the weekday of the first day of the month (0 for Monday, 1 for Tuesday, etc.).
• The second value is the number of days in the month.
• By accessing the second value of the tuple ([1]), the code retrieves the number of days in the specified month.
• Finally it prints the number of days in the specified month using "print()".
