Python Exercise: Print alphabet pattern S

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

result_str="";    
for row in range(0,7):    
    for column in range(0,7):     
        if (((row == 0 or row == 3 or row == 6) and column > 1 and column < 5) or (column == 1 and (row == 1 or row == 2 or row == 6)) or (column == 5 and (row == 0 or row == 4 or row == 5))):  
            result_str=result_str+"*"    
        else:      
            result_str=result_str+" "    
    result_str=result_str+"\n"    
print(result_str);

row=15    
col=18   
result_str=""    
for i in range(1,row+1):    
    if((i<=3)or(i>=7 and i<=9)or(i>=13 and i<=15)):    
        for j in range(1,col):    
            result_str=result_str+"o"    
        result_str=result_str+"\n"    
    elif(i>=4 and i<=6):    
        for j in range(1,5):    
            result_str=result_str+"o"    
        result_str=result_str+"\n"    
    else:    
        for j in range(1,14):    
            result_str=result_str+" "    
        for j in range(1,5):    
            result_str=result_str+"o"    
        result_str=result_str+"\n"    
print(result_str);
  

Sample Output:

Python: Tips of the Day

Returns a list with n elements removed from the beginning

Example:

def tips_take(itr, n = 1):
  return itr[:n]
print(tips_take([1, 2, 3], 5))
print(tips_take([1, 2, 3], 0))

Output:
