Why it's True False False?
Plaese take a look at my Python code. Can you explain me the 'is' operator in this case? https://code.sololearn.com/c88nbF0EdLW2/?ref=app
list1 = [1,2] >create a list and store it in list1 list2 = list1 >assign list1 to list2..meaning list2 is also pointing to same object(i think python call value as object)..so there are both pointing to same thing list3 = list2[:] >that[:] in list will return a new list..it will have same value as list2 but it is a new one.. "is" keyword will only return true if u compare two variable that point to same object
The id is different, it is another object, try this adding to your code. print (id(list1)) print (id(list2)) print (id(list3))
Okay Lily Mea final test: L1 = [[1,1],[1,2]] L2 =L1[:] L1=3 What is L2 now and why?
Additionally to HonFu s great tutorial I would propose that you read all functions for a list object (Sort,reverse,....) and find out if the result creates a new reference or works on list itself(inplace).
After reading this, all of that sort of questions should become clear... I hope. https://code.sololearn.com/c89ejW97QsTN/?ref=app
Lily Mea Now I understand the 'is' operator. It compares the ID of the variable and not its value. Thanks for explanation to all answers
