sorted() and itemgetter() issues
I do not know what the question is looking for. I am working on Python.
The following question: Challenge Task 2 of 2
Now create a variable named sorted_fruit that uses sorted() and itemgetter() to sort fruit_list by the second item in each tuple.
I entered the following into a separate pycharm IDE and it works:
fruit_list = [ ('apple', 2), ('banana', 5), ('coconut', 1), ('durian', 3), ('elderberries', 4) ] sorted_fruit = sorted(fruit_list, key=operator.itemgetter(1)) print(sorted_fruit)
I cannot figure out just exactly what the quiz is looking for.
fruit_list = [ ('apple', 2), ('banana', 5), ('coconut', 1), ('durian', 3), ('elderberries', 4) ] from operator import itemgetter sorted_fruit = sorted(fruit_list, key=operator.itemgetter(1)) print sorted_fruit
