Pandas Practice Set-1: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to read a csv file from a specified source and print the first 5 rows.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
pd.set_option('display.max_rows', 50)
pd.set_option('display.max_columns', 50)
diamonds = pd.read_csv('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mwaskom/seaborn-data/master/diamonds.csv')
print("First 5 rows:")
print(diamonds.head())

Sample Output:

First 5 rows:
   carat      cut color clarity  depth  table  price     x     y     z
0   0.23    Ideal     E     SI2   61.5   55.0    326  3.95  3.98  2.43
