Lists are very similar to arrays. They can contain any type of variable, and they can contain as many variables as you wish. Lists can also be iterated over in a very simple manner. Here is an example of how to build a list.
mylist =  mylist.append(1) mylist.append(2) mylist.append(3) print(mylist) # prints 1 print(mylist) # prints 2 print(mylist) # prints 3 # prints out 1,2,3 for x in mylist: print x
Accessing an index which does not exist generates an exception (an error).
mylist = [1,2,3] print(mylist)
In this exercise, you will need to add numbers and strings to the correct lists using the "append" list method. You must add the numbers 1,2, and 3 to the "numbers" list, and the words 'hello' and 'world' to the strings variable.
You will also have to fill in the variable second_name with the second name in the names list, using the brackets operator . Note that the index is zero-based, so if you want to access the second item in the list, its index will be 1.
numbers =  strings =  names = ["John", "Eric", "Jessica"] # write your code here second_name = None # this code should write out the filled arrays and the second name in the names list (Eric). print(numbers) print(strings) print("The second name on the names list is %s" % second_name)
[1, 2, 3] ['hello', 'world'] The second name on the names list is Eric
