# Find output of Python programs - 1

This section contains the **programs with correct output and explanations in Python**; you have to find your output of particular program and match output with the given output.

**1) Find the output of the following code:**

sum = 0 for i in range(12,2,-2): sum+=i print sum

Output

40

Explanation

The syntax for the range() method is range(start, stop, step). The for loop starts from **12** and ends at **2** (excluded) while at each step decrement of **-2** take place. Thus, **sum = 12+10+8+6+4 = 40**

**2) Find the output of the following code:**

n=50 i=5 s=0 while i<n: s+=i i+=10 print "i=",i print "sum=",s

Output

i= 55 sum= 125

Explanation

Variable i act as a counter variable which change its value at each iteration. Starting from **5**, each time incremented by **10**. The while loop went false when i becomes **55** (which is >n(50)) makes **sum = 125**.

**3) Find the output of the following code:**

List=[1,6,8,4,5] print List[-4:]

Output

[6, 8, 4, 5]

Explanation

Negative index traverse the List in reverse order. Here, List[-4:] represent elements from (size-4+1)=(5-4+1) i.e, 2^{nd} element to the last element of the list.

**4) How many times are the following loops executed?**

i=100 while(i<=200): print i i+=20

Output

6

Explanation

Initially i=100 and keep incrementing by **20**, where while loop breaks when i becomes **220** (which is >=200).

**5) Find the output of the following code:**

L=[100,200,300,400,500] L1=L[2:4] print L1 L2=L[1:5] print L2 L2.extend(L1) print L2

Output

[300, 400] [200, 300, 400, 500] [200, 300, 400, 500, 300, 400]

Explanation

Due to 1^{st} step, now L1 comprises 3^{rd} and 4^{th} element of the list L. While list L2 contains all the elements of list L except the last one. In last line of code, L2 extends L1 i.e., all the elements of L1 will appended in L2.

**6) Predict the behavior of the code:**

List=list("String") print List

Output

['S', 't', 'r', 'i', 'n', 'g']

Explanation

list() method treat string as a sequence of characters. Each character of the string **"String"** behaves as a separate element for the list.
