Python: Check whether two lists are circularly identical

Python List: Exercise - 26 with Solution

Write a python program to check whether two lists are circularly identical.

Python: Check whether two lists are circularly identical

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

list1 = [10, 10, 0, 0, 10]
list2 = [10, 10, 10, 0, 0]
list3 = [1, 10, 10, 0, 0]

print('Compare list1 and list2')
print(' '.join(map(str, list2)) in ' '.join(map(str, list1 * 2)))
print('Compare list1 and list3')
print(' '.join(map(str, list3)) in ' '.join(map(str, list1 * 2)))

Sample Output:

Compare list1 and list2                                                                                       
True                                                                                                          
Compare list1 and list3                                                                                       
False

>>> students = ('John', 'Mary', 'Mike')
>>> ages = (15, 17, 16)
>>> scores = (90, 88, 82, 17, 14)
>>> for student, age, score in zip(students, ages, scores):
...     print(f'{student}, age: {age}, score: {score}')

John, age: 15, score: 90

>>> zipped = zip(students, ages, scores)
>>> a, b, c = zip(*zipped)
>>> print(b)
