# Python: Check the length and the fifth element occurs twice in a list

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts a list of integers and calculates the length and the fifth element. Return true if the length of the list is 8 and the fifth element occurs thrice in the said list.

Input: [19, 19, 15, 5, 5, 5, 1, 2] Output: True Input: [19, 15, 5, 7, 5, 5, 2] Output: False Input: [11, 12, 14, 13, 14, 13, 15, 14] Output: True Input: [19, 15, 11, 7, 5, 6, 2] Output: False

def test(nums):
return len(nums) == 8 and nums.count(nums[4]) == 3
nums = [19,19,15,5,5,5,1,2]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. :")
print(test(nums))
nums = [19,15,5,7,5,5,2]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
print("Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. :")
print(test(nums))
nums = [11,12,14,13,14,13,15,14]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
print("Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. :")
print(test(nums))
nums = [19,15,11,7,5,6,2]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
print("Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. :")
print(test(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [19, 19, 15, 5, 5, 5, 1, 2] Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. : True Original list: [19, 15, 5, 7, 5, 5, 2] Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. : False Original list: [11, 12, 14, 13, 14, 13, 15, 14] Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. : True Original list: [19, 15, 11, 7, 5, 6, 2] Check whether the length of the said list is 8 and fifth element occurs thrice in the said list. : False
