Python: Check whether a specified list is sorted or not

Python List: Exercise - 112 with Solution

Write a Python program to check whether a specified list is sorted or not.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def is_sort_list(nums):
    result = all(nums[i] <= nums[i+1] for i in range(len(nums)-1))
    return result

nums1 = [1,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,17]
print ("Original list:")
print(nums1)
print("\nIs the said list is sorted!")
print(is_sort_list(nums1)) 

nums2 = [2,3,8,4,7,9,8,2,6,5,1,6,1,2,3,4,6,9,1,2]
print ("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums1)
print("\nIs the said list is sorted!")
print(is_sort_list(nums2))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17]

Is the said list is sorted!
True

Original list:
[1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17]

Is the said list is sorted!
False
