``````# Create a list 'original_list' with some elements
original_list = [10, 22, 44, 23, 4]

# Create a new list 'new_list' and copy the elements from 'original_list' into it
new_list = list(original_list)

# Print the contents of the 'original_list'
print(original_list)

# Print the contents of the 'new_list', which is a copy of 'original_list'
print(new_list)
```
```

Sample Output:

```[10, 22, 44, 23, 4]
[10, 22, 44, 23, 4]
```

Explanation:

In the above exercise -

original_list = [10, 22, 44, 23, 4]  -> This line creates a new list called original_list that contains five integer values.

new_list = list(original_list)  -> This line creates a new list called new_list that is a copy of the original_list. The list function is called with original_list as its argument, which creates a new list object with the same elements as original_list.
