# Python: Find the list with maximum and minimum length using lambda

## Python Lambda: Exercise-26 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the list with maximum and minimum length using lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````def max_length_list(input_list):
max_length = max(len(x) for x in input_list )
max_list = max(input_list, key = lambda i: len(i))
return(max_length, max_list)

def min_length_list(input_list):
min_length = min(len(x) for x in input_list )
min_list = min(input_list, key = lambda i: len(i))
return(min_length, min_list)

list1 = [[0], [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [13, 15, 17]]
print("Original list:")
print(list1)
print("\nList with maximum length of lists:")
print(max_length_list(list1))
print("\nList with minimum length of lists:")
print(min_length_list(list1))
``````

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[[0], [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [13, 15, 17]]

List with maximum length of lists:
(3, [13, 15, 17])

List with minimum length of lists:
(1, [0])
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Returns all the elements of a list except the last one

Example:

```def tips_initial(lst):
return lst[0:-1]

print(tips_initial([1, 2, 3, 4]))
```

Output:

```[1, 2, 3]
