Python: Sort each sublist of strings in a given list of lists

Python List: Exercise - 95 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort each sublist of strings in a given list of lists.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def sort_sublists(input_list):
    result = list(map(sorted, input_list)) 
    return result
color1 = [["green", "orange"], ["black", "white"], ["white", "black", "orange"]]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(color1)  
print("\nAfter sorting each sublist of the said list of lists:")
print(sort_sublists(color1))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[['green', 'orange'], ['black', 'white'], ['white', 'black', 'orange']]

After sorting each sublist of the said list of lists:
[['green', 'orange'], ['black', 'white'], ['black', 'orange', 'white']]

Floor Division:

When we speak of division we normally mean (/) float division operator, this will give a precise result in float format with decimals.

For a rounded integer result there is (//) floor division operator in Python. Floor division will only give integer results that are round numbers.

print(1000 // 300)
print(1000 / 300)

Output:

3
