Python Coding challenge - Day 210 | What is the output of the following Python Code?



lst = ['P', 20, 'Q', 4.50]

item = iter(lst)


Solution and Explanation: 

 Let's break down the code and explain each part in detail:

lst = ['P', 20, 'Q', 4.50]
item = iter(lst)


Creating the List:

lst = ['P', 20, 'Q', 4.50]
This line defines a list named lst with four elements:
A string 'P'
An integer 20
Another string 'Q'
A float 4.50

Creating an Iterator:

item = iter(lst)
The iter() function is called with the list lst as an argument.
This converts the list into an iterator object. An iterator is an object that allows you to traverse through all the elements of a collection (in this case, the list lst).
The iterator item is now ready to iterate over the elements of the list one by one.

Accessing the First Element Using next():

The next() function is called on the iterator item.
The next() function retrieves the next element from the iterator. Since this is the first call to next(item), it returns the first element of the list lst, which is 'P'.
After retrieving the element, the iterator advances to the next element in the list.
The print() function then prints this retrieved element ('P') to the console.


When you run the code, the output will be: P

This is because 'P' is the first element in the list lst. The next(item) function call retrieves and returns this first element, which is then printed by the print() function.
