Python: Initialize and fills a list with the specified value

Python List: Exercise - 251 with Solution

Write a Python program that fills a list with the specified value.

  • Use a list comprehension and range() to generate a list of length equal to n, filled with the desired values.
  • Omit val to use the default value of 0.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def initialize_list_with_values(n, val = 0):
  return [val for x in range(n)] 
print(initialize_list_with_values(5, 3.2))

Sample Output:

[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]
[3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3]
[-2, -2, -2, -2, -2]
[3.2, 3.2, 3.2, 3.2, 3.2]
