What is the difference between the two  statements?
(i) t=(‘a’,’b’,’c’)
(ii) a,b,c=t 


The difference between the two statements is:

  • The first statement (i) creates a tuple with three elements (‘a’, ‘b’, and ‘c’) and assigns it to a variable t. 
  • The second statement (ii) unpacks the tuple t and assigns its elements to three variables a, b, and c. Unpacking is a way of assigning multiple values to multiple variables in one line of code.
