Python: Sort each sublist of strings in a given list of lists using lambda

Python Lambda: Exercise-27 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort each sublist of strings in a given list of lists using lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

def sort_sublists(input_list):
    result = [sorted(x, key = lambda x:x[0]) for x in input_list] 
    return result
color1 = [["green", "orange"], ["black", "white"], ["white", "black", "orange"]]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(color1)  
print("\nAfter sorting each sublist of the said list of lists:")
print(sort_sublists(color1))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[['green', 'orange'], ['black', 'white'], ['white', 'black', 'orange']]

After sorting each sublist of the said list of lists:
[['green', 'orange'], ['black', 'white'], ['black', 'orange', 'white']]
