Write Python logic to count the number of capital letters in a file.


How to make Indentation in Python

Unlike language like C, C++, Java It has some different Indentation mechanism.
Other languages follow the indentation like braces or semicolon, where are Python followed by the new line. In order to code readable Programmer must have to make Indentation.
The syntax for example of Indentations


What is the difference between .py and .pyc files?

Python compiles the .py and saves files as .pyc
In Simple we can say .py files are Python source files.  where as .pyc files are the compiled bytecode.
Once the *.pyc file is generated, there is no need of *.py file, unless until you edit the .py  file. So it will save your time, No need to compile again an again.

What is the difference between *var and  ** var in Python?

Both  *var and ** var allow you a pass a variable to the number of argument to functions.

Here *var or **var you can change like anything. eg- *kar, **kar (take for your convenience)

*var is used to send a non-keyworded variable-length argument list to the function.


**var allows you to pass a keyworded variable length of arguments to a function.


What are the Python Web Frameworks for developing web applications?

There are some web frameworks provided by Python. They follow below
TurboGears –  It permits you to quickly develop protractile data-driven Web applications.
Bottle – It is a micro-framework for developing the web application.
web2py – it is the simplest of all the web frameworks used for developing web applications.
cherryPy – it is a Python-based Object based Web framework.
Flask – it is  a micro-framework for developing and designing web applications.

Explain Some in-built functions to manipulate list in Python!

Compares elements of both lists – cmp(list1, list2)

Get the length of the list – len(list)

Get the max value from a list – max(list)

Get the min value from a list –min(list)

Get the lowest index in the list that object appears – list.index(obj)

Inserts object obj into list at offset index –list.insert(index, obj)

Removes and returns last object or obj from list – list.pop(obj=list[-1])

Removes object obj from list- list.remove(obj)

Reverses objects of list in place- list.reverse()

Sorts objects of list, use compare func if given – list.sort([func])

What is the usage of help() and dir() function in Python?

help() is a useful  default function in Python program that can be used to get the documentation of a particular object, method, attributes, etc.


In Python to get all the attributes list we you have to use dir() function, where you need to pass the argument as an object. If you won’t passes any argument then it will return list of a current local namespace.


OutPut : You will get all default local names space like [‘__add__’, ‘__class__’,…]

What are uses of  “/” and “//” operator in python?

Division(“/”): Divides left hand operand by right hand operand.

Here This work like general mathematics way.  suppose

Floor Division(“//”): The division of operands where the result is the quotient in which the digits after the decimal point are removed. But if one of the operands is negative, the result is floored, i.e., rounded away from zero (towards negative infinity).


What is a dictionary in Python?

In Python Dictionary defines one-to-one relationship between keys and values. Dictionaries contain a pair of keys and their corresponding values. Dictionaries are indexed by keys like JSON data or associative array.Let’s have a simple example for the sake of understanding.

append() and extend() methods are the methods of list in Python. These methods are used to a dd the elements at the end of the list.
append(element) – adds the given element at the end of the list.
extend(another-list) – adds the elements of another-list at the end of the list.
