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. add AND assignment operator






2. Symbol to divide by the number to the right of the symbol






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






4. Function to read the contents of a file






5. End header line.






6. 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






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






8. subtract AND assignment operator






9. 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






10. floor division AND assignment operator






11. This keyword in the body of a conditional - gives an alternative execution.






12. adds an item to a list






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






14. multiply AND assignment operator






15. Less than symbol






16. Writes stuff to the file.






17. Reads the contents of the file you can assign the result to a variable.






18. Less than or equal to symbol






19. exponent AND assignment operator






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






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






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






23. square root






24. divide AND assignment operator






25. Prints a string to the screen which is converted using repr()






26. Function to write something to a file






27. Symbol to add things together






28. This keyword begins the simplest form of a conditional statement.






29. Symbol to subtract things from each other






30. Prints a string to the screen which is a signed decimal.






31. multiply AND assignment operator






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






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






34. prints its parameter to the console






35. Create a variable.






36. ,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.






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






38. Greater than symbol






39. Adds something to a variable






40. Prints a string to the screen which is converted using repr()






41. This keyword creates a new class object which is a user-defined type - like a factory for creating objects.






42. The keyword beginning a header that will create a loop.






43. floor division AND assignment operator






44. Holds the value of something - e.g. oh_hi = 4 where oh_hi is the variable.






45. Less than symbol






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






47. Evaluates to true if it finds a variable in the specified sequence and false otherwise. x in y - here in results in a 1 if x is a member of sequence y.






48. A logical operator which requires two expressions to both be true.






49. turns an object into an integer






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