What is Python language? Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language.Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than possible in languages such as C++ or Java. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming or procedural styles.It features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management and has a large and comprehensive standard library.The best way we learn anything is by practice and exercise questions.
