Programming Assignment 1

Question 1 : Given a list L write a program to make a new list to fix the indexes of numbers to in list L to its same value in the new list. Put 0 at remaining indexes. Also print the elements of the new list in the single line.

Input : [1,5,6]

Output : 0 1 0 0 0 5 6

					L = list(map(int, input().split()))
m = max(L)
L1 = [0]*(m+1)

for i in L:
    L1[i] = i

for i in range(len(L1)-1):
    print(L1[i], end=' ')

Programming Assignment 2

Question 2 : Ram shifted to a new place recently. There are multiple schools near his locality. Given the co-ordinates of Ram P(X,Y) and schools near his locality in a nested list, find the closest school. Print multiple coordinates in respective order if there exists multiple schools closest to him. Write a function closestSchool that accepts (X ,Y , L) where X and Y are co-ordinates of Ram’s house and L contains co-ordinates of different school.

Distance Formula(To calculate distance between two co-ordinates): √((X2 – X1)² + (Y2 – Y1)²),  where (x1,y1) is the co-ordinate of point 1 and (x2, y2) is the co-ordinate of point 2.

Input :
X, Y (Ram’s house co-ordinates)
N (No of schools)
X1 Y1
X2 Y2

X6 Y6

Output :
Closest pont/points to X, Y

					import math

def closestSchool(x,y, L):
    minD = 1000000
    distance = []
    for i in L:
        x1, y1 = i[0], i[1]
        d = math.sqrt((x1-x)**2 + (y1-y)**2)
        if d<minD:
            distance = []
            minD = d
        elif d == minD:
    for i in distance:
x, y = map(int, input().split())

n = int(input())
L = []
for i in range(n):
    l = list(map(int, input().split()))
closestSchool(x, y, L)

Programming Assignment 3

Question 3Given a string s write a program to convert uppercase letters into lowercase and lowercase letters into uppercase. Also print the resultant string.

Input : The Joy Of Computing

Output : tHE jOY oF cOMPUTING

					import string 
import random

upper = string.ascii_uppercase
lower = string.ascii_letters
s = input()
ans = ''
for i in s:
    if i in upper:
        idx = upper.index(i)
        ans += lower[idx]
    elif i in lower:
        idx = lower.index(i)
        ans += upper[idx]
