What will be the output of the following code:
t = (10, 20, 30, 40, 50)
t = t[1:4]
t = t * 2
print(t)
a)(20, 30, 40, 20, 30, 40)
b)(10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50)
c)(10, 20, 30, 40)
d)(20, 30)

- In the first line, we create a tuple t with five elements: 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50.
- In the second line, we assign t to a new tuple that is a slice of the original tuple from index 1 to index 3 (exclusive). This means we take the elements at index 1, 2 and 3 from the original tuple and make a new tuple with them. The new tuple is (20, 30, 40).
- In the third line, we use the repetition operator (*) to create a new tuple that is the concatenation of two copies of the previous tuple. This means we join the tuple (20, 30, 40) with itself and make a new tuple with six elements: (20, 30, 40, 20, 30, 40).
- In the fourth line, we print the value of t , which is the new tuple we created in the previous line.
Let’s look at the options and see why they are correct or incorrect:
- Option a is correct because it matches the value of t that we printed in the last line.
- Option b is incorrect because it shows the original tuple repeated twice, not the sliced tuple.
- Option c is incorrect because it shows only the sliced tuple, not the repeated tuple.
- Option d is incorrect because it shows only two elements from the sliced tuple, not all three.
So, the correct answer is a. (20, 30, 40, 20, 30, 40)
