# Python: Find the list with maximum and minimum length

## Python List: Exercise - 91 with Solution

Write a Python program to find a list with maximum and minimum lengths.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def max_length_list(input_list):
max_length = max(len(x) for x in input_list )
max_list = max(input_list, key = len)
return(max_length, max_list)
def min_length_list(input_list):
min_length = min(len(x) for x in input_list )
min_list = min(input_list, key = len)
return(min_length, min_list)
list1 = [, [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [13, 15, 17]]
print("Original list:")
print(list1)
print("\nList with maximum length of lists:")
print(max_length_list(list1))
print("\nList with minimum length of lists:")
print(min_length_list(list1))
list1 =  [, [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [3, 5, 7]]
print("Original list:")
print(list1)
print("\nList with maximum length of lists:")
print(max_length_list(list1))
print("\nList with minimum length of lists:")
print(min_length_list(list1))
list1 =  [, [1, 3], [1, 34, 5, 7], [9, 11], [3, 5, 7]]
print("Original list:")
print(list1)
print("\nList with maximum length of lists:")
print(max_length_list(list1))
print("\nList with minimum length of lists:")
print(min_length_list(list1))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[, [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [13, 15, 17]]

List with maximum length of lists:
(3, [13, 15, 17])

List with minimum length of lists:
(1, )
Original list:
[, [1, 3], [5, 7], [9, 11], [3, 5, 7]]

List with maximum length of lists:
(3, [3, 5, 7])

List with minimum length of lists:
(1, )
Original list:
[, [1, 3], [1, 34, 5, 7], [9, 11], [3, 5, 7]]

List with maximum length of lists:
(4, [1, 34, 5, 7])

List with minimum length of lists:
(1, )
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Decapitalizes the first letter of a string:

Example:

```def tips_decapitalize(s, upper_rest=False):
return s[:1].lower() + (s[1:].upper() if upper_rest else s[1:])
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips'))
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips', True))
```

Output:

```pythonTips
pYTHONTIPS
```
