Python function: Insert None between list elements

Python None Data Type: Exercise-9 with Solution

Write a Python function that takes a list and returns a new list with None inserted between each element.

Sample Solution:


def insert_none(input_list):
    new_list = []
    for item in input_list:
    new_list.pop()  # Remove the last None added
    return new_list

def main():
        original_list = [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
        new_list = insert_none(original_list)
        print("Original List:", original_list)
        print("New List with None:", new_list)
    except Exception as e:
        print("An error occurred:", e)

if __name__ == "__main__":


Original List: [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
New List with None: [2, None, 4, None, 6, None, 8, None, 10]

In the exercise above, the "insert_none()" function iterates through the input list and appends each element to the new list, followed by a 'None'. After iterating through all elements, it removes the last 'None' added. Using a sample list and printing the original and new lists, the "main()" function demonstrates the function's usage.
