Python Coding challenge - Day 137 | What is the output of the following Python Code?

 


a = [1, 2, 3, 4]

b = [1, 2, 5]

print(a < b)

Two lists, a and b, are defined.

a is [1, 2, 3, 4]

b is [1, 2, 5]

The code uses the less-than (<) operator to compare the two lists a and b. This comparison is performed element-wise.

The first elements of both lists are equal (1 == 1).

The second elements are equal (2 == 2).

The third elements are different (3 in a and 5 in b).

The less-than comparison stops at the first differing element. Since 3 is less than 5, the entire comparison evaluates to True.

The result of the comparison is printed using print(a < b), and it will output True.

So, the output of the code is:

True

This is because, in lexicographical order, the list a is considered less than the list b due to the first differing element at index 2.
