Difference between Tuple and List in Python
Tuple and List are used to store data in Python Language.
Tuple: A tuple is a collection of values and it is declared using parentheses. However, we can
also use a tuple packing to do the same, and unpacking to assign its values to a sequence.
Lists: Unlike in C++, we don’t have arrays to work with in Python. Here, we have a list
o A List is Mutable
o B Tuple is Immutable
In built Methods:
o Following Methos can apply to List append(), insert(), remove(), pop(), clear(),
sort(), and reverse().
o But not applicable to Tuple.
o We can store tuples in a list when we want to. For example,
o [(1, ‘ABC’), (2, ‘DEF’), (3, ‘GHI’)]
o Lists in a Tuple
o Likewise, we can also use a tuple to store lists. Let’s see how.
o >>> mytuple=([1,2],[3,4],[5,6])
o Use a tuple when you know what information goes in the container that it is.
For example, when you want to store a person’s credentials for your
o >>> person=('ABC','admin','12345')
o But when you want to store similar elements, like in an array in C++, you
should use a list.
o >>> groceries=['bread','butter','cheese']
