Basic Python Programming

Subject : it-skills
Instructions:
  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Binary OR Operator copies a bit if it exists in eather operand. (a | b) will give 61 which is 0011 1101






2. Greater than or equal symbol.






3. turns an object into a string






4. sets the file's current position






5. deletes an item from a list






6. Called Logical AND operator. If both the operands are true then then condition becomes true. (a and b) is true.






7. absolute value






8. This keyword attempts to do something that would cause the program to crash if it were not for this statement.






9. A string that begins with the % symbol and contains a sequence of printable characters and format specifiers that determine how values output should look.






10. divide AND assignment operator






11. Binary Left Shift Operator. The left operands value is moved left by the number of bits specified by the right operand. a << 2 will give 240 which is 1111 0000






12. Function to write something to a file






13. rounds a number to the number of decimal points you choose






14. Prints a string to the screen which will be Unicode.






15. inserts an item inside a list at a certain index






16. Modulus operator. It's the remainder after division






17. Adds something to a variable






18. square root






19. Symbol to subtract things from each other






20. deletes an item from a list






21. A data type for representing numbers with fractional values.






22. adds an item to a list






23. adds an item to a list






24. Function to close a file - it will not be able to be used again unless the file is opened.






25. This keyword in the body of a conditional allows chained conditionals.






26. A statement that displays a value on the screen.






27. Symbol to multiply things






28. Binary AND Operator copies a bit to the result if it exists in both operands. (a & b) will give 12 which is 0000 1100






29. Greater than symbol






30. Function to empty the contents of a file - no recovery is possible






31. Command to print to the screen






32. reads just one line of a text file & keeps track of where in the file you're at






33. Greater than symbol






34. The keyword beginning a header that will create a new function.






35. The extension for Python scripts






36. Binary XOR Operator copies the bit if it is set in one operand but not both. (a ^ b) will give 49 which is 0011 0001






37. A logical operator which compares two operands and produces True if they are equal and False otherwise






38. modulus AND assignment operator






39. An operator to check whether two variables refer to the same object.






40. This statement causes an exception.






41. exponent AND assignment operator






42. Symbol used to create comments






43. Create a variable.






44. The extension for Python scripts






45. Less than symbol






46. inserts an item inside a list at a certain index






47. Where the parameters go. A necessary punctuation after any function even if it's empty.






48. unction to read one line of a file






49. A logical operator which returns a value of True if either of the conditions is true.






50. ,multi-line comment hard-code,Fix (data or parameters) in a program in such a way that they cannot easily be altered by the user.
