# Python: Generate a random integer and date

## Python module: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to generate a random integer between 0 and 6 - excluding 6, random integer between 5 and 10 - excluding 10, random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3 and random date between two dates.

Use random.randrange()

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
import random
import datetime
print("Generate a random integer between 0 and 6:")
print(random.randrange(5))
print("Generate random integer between 5 and 10, excluding 10:")
print(random.randrange(start=5, stop=10))
print("Generate random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3:")
print(random.randrange(start=0, stop=10, step=3))
print("\nRandom date between two dates:")
start_dt = datetime.date(2019, 2, 1)
end_dt = datetime.date(2019, 3, 1)
time_between_dates = end_dt - start_dt
days_between_dates = time_between_dates.days
random_number_of_days = random.randrange(days_between_dates)
random_date = start_dt + datetime.timedelta(days=random_number_of_days)
print(random_date)
```

Sample Output:

Generate a random integer between 0 and 6: 0 Generate random integer between 5 and 10, excluding 10: 5 Generate random integer between 0 and 10, with a step of 3: 3 Random date between two dates: 2019-02-17
