Visual Presentation:

Python: Shuffle and print a specified list

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

# Import the 'shuffle' function from the 'random' module, which is used for shuffling the elements in a list
from random import shuffle

# Create a list 'color' with several color strings
color = ['Red', 'Green', 'White', 'Black', 'Pink', 'Yellow']

# Use the 'shuffle' function to randomly reorder the elements in the 'color' list

# Print the shuffled 'color' list, which will have its elements in a random order

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.


Flowchart: Shuffle and print a specified list

Python Code Editor:

Previous: Write a Python program to print the numbers of a specified list after removing even numbers from it.
Next: Write a Python program to generate and print a list of first and last 5 elements where the values are square of numbers between 1 and 30 (both included).
