R Programming: Reorder an given data frame by column name

R Programming: Data frame Exercise-18 with Solution

Write a R program to reorder an given data frame by column name.

Sample Solution:

R Programming Code:

exam_data = data.frame(
name = c('Anastasia', 'Dima', 'Katherine', 'James', 'Emily', 'Michael', 'Matthew', 'Laura', 'Kevin', 'Jonas'),
score = c(12.5, 9, 16.5, 12, 9, 20, 14.5, 13.5, 8, 19),
attempts = c(1, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1),
qualify = c('yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes')
)
print("Original dataframe:")
print(exam_data)
print("Reorder by column name:")
exam_data = exam_data[c("name", "attempts", "score", "qualify")]
print(exam_data)

Sample Output:

[1] "Original dataframe:"
        name score attempts qualify
1  Anastasia  12.5        1     yes
2       Dima   9.0        3      no
3  Katherine  16.5        2     yes
4      James  12.0        3      no
5      Emily   9.0        2      no
6    Michael  20.0        3     yes
7    Matthew  14.5        1     yes
8      Laura  13.5        1      no
9      Kevin   8.0        2      no
10     Jonas  19.0        1     yes
[1] "Reorder by column name:"
        name attempts score qualify
1  Anastasia        1  12.5     yes
2       Dima        3   9.0      no
3  Katherine        2  16.5     yes
4      James        3  12.0      no
5      Emily        2   9.0      no
6    Michael        3  20.0     yes
7    Matthew        1  14.5     yes
8      Laura        1  13.5      no
9      Kevin        2   8.0      no
10     Jonas        1  19.0     yes
