Python: Shuffle and print a specified list

Python List: Exercise - 15 with Solution

Write a Python program to shuffle and print a specified list.

Python: Shuffle and print a specified list

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from random import shuffle
color = ['Red', 'Green', 'White', 'Black', 'Pink', 'Yellow']

Sample Output:

['Yellow', 'Pink', 'Green', 'Red', 'Black', 'White'] 


In the above exercise -

color = ['Red', 'Green', 'White', 'Black', 'Pink', 'Yellow']  -> A list named color is defined and initialized with six string elements.

shuffle(color)  -> Here the shuffle() function from the random module is called with the color list as its argument. This function shuffles the elements of the list in-place, i.e., it modifies the list directly without returning a new list.

print(color)  -> Finally print() function prints the shuffled color list.

Python: Tips of the Day

Given a predicate function, fn, and a prop string, this curried function will then take an object to inspect by calling the property and passing it to the predicate:


def tips_check_prop(fn, prop):
  return lambda obj: fn(obj[prop])
check_age = tips_check_prop(lambda x: x >= 25, 'age')
user = {'name': 'Owen', 'age': 25}
