Python multiple inputs on a line

How do I take 3 inputs on a line that the program will still run if 1 input was provided

hobbies = list(input().split())[:3] try: x,y,z = hobbies except: for i in range(3-len(hobbies)): hobbies.append(None) x,y,z = hobbies print(' '.join(map(str,[x,y,z])).replace('None','')) Try this If you would like a better solution tell me exactly what is the problem you are trying to solve by this program . Check it out here and give as many inputs you may like 0-infinite: https://code.sololearn.com/cxGsfiRnNOoM/?ref=app

Um.... i think he wants to store the first 3 so that he can do something. like he wants to do something with those x , y and z but ignore the extras for now and also he is giving highest priority to the first element . this is just my assumption according to his descriptions and replies.

Bob_Li well meanwhile my program : 1) He needs 3 optional inputs 2) He needs to store them 3) If they are not provided make them None 4)If a lot are provided just ignore them Meanwhile yours : 1) I just take 1st input into consideration and store it bro why do you forget he said , he needs 3 input in a single line (space seperated) and if only 1 , 2 or 3 or none or more are given the program should still run . But you are forgetting the main point

we just like to climb imaginary mountains. Or set artificial constraints.

Anonymous_User [user id="23968223"]Adekunle Ojekunle[/user] perhaps it is not about Sololearn input? Maybe he means function that can take arbitrary number of arguments? Then maybe something like this? def print_arguments(*args): for a in args: print(a) print_arguments(1, 'fdgf', '😎') print_arguments(1, 'fdgf') print_arguments(1) print_arguments()

Bob_Li we should just leave this topic because " Perhaps there are infinitely many possibilities about what he means " 🤣

If i input one value, the program won’t run because its expecting 3 inputs not 1

Do you need to run on any inputs of 1 to 3 ? Can you tell me what the remaining task with the code ?

Yes, i need to run on any inputs, it just has to print any input that is provided either 1,2 or 3

You can use this: hobbies = input("Enter hobbies:").split() print(*hobbies) #unpacking into #if you must set 3 variables to default then use try catch.. edit: Adekunle Ojekunle do you aware of try - except blocks?
