2) Each statement below is either TRUE or FALSE. Choose the most appropriate one and enter your choice in the “OMR” answer sheet supplied with the question paper, following instructions therein. (1 X 10)

2.1) Python is a high-level, interpreted, interactive, and object-oriented scripting language. It is designed to be highly unreadable.

2.2)Python is derived from many other languages, including ABC, Modula-3, C, C++, Algo1-68, Small Talk, and Unix shell, and other scripting languages.

2.3) In Python assignment of more than one behavior to a particular function and the operation performed varies by the types of objects or arguments involved are known as operator overloading.

2.4) To access values in a tuple, use the square brackets for slicing along with the index or indices to obtain the value available at that index.

2.5) The Python standard for database interfaces is the Python SB-API. Most Python database interfaces adhere to this standard.

2.6)If a connection is established with the data source then a Connection Object is returned and saved into DB. for further use, otherwise, DB. is set to None.

2.7)The tell() method tells you the current position within the file.

2.8)Removing individual tuple elements is possible.

2.9)The first method _ init _ () is a special method, which is called class constructor or initialization method that Python calls when you create a new instance of this class.

2.10)When a Python script raises an exception, it must either handle the exception immediately otherwise it terminates and quits.

3.) Match words and phrases in column X with the closest related meaning /word(s)/phrase(s) in column Y. Enter your selection in the “OMR” answer sheet supplied with the question paper, following instructions therein. (1 X 10)

D.) Value Error

3.5)Negative count from the right


3.6)Method displays the current working directory

F.)Runtime Error

3.7)The offset of the local DST time zone


3.8)Converts a list into a tuple


3.9)Shows current position within the file


3.10)Explicitly remove an entire tuple    



K.)Syntax Error





4.) Each statement below has a blank space to fit one of the word(s) or phrase(s) in the list below. Enter your choice in the “OMR” answer sheet attached to the question paper, following instructions therein.  (1X10)

4.1) The output of following Python program is __________.

      r =lambda q:q*2

      s =lambda q:q*3

      x =2

      x =r(x)

        x =s(x)

        x =r(x)

        print x

4.2) Let consider the following Python code

        a =True

        b =False

        c =False

if a or b and c:

print “TRUE”


print “FALSE”

the output of this code is ________.

4.3) Recursive functions usually take ________ memory space than non-recursive function.

4.4) Python programming language was created by ________.

4.5) Python supports Object-Oriented style or technique of programming that encapsulates code within_______.

4.6) _________ returns the current time instant, a floating-point number of seconds since the epoch.

4.7) All parameters (arguments) in the Python language are passed by________.

4.8) The _________ can be accessed only inside the function in which they are declared, whereas global variables can be accessed throughout the program body by all function.

4.9) The differences between tuples and lists are, the tuples cannot be changed unlike lists and tuples use __________ whereas lists use square brackets.

4.10) Python converts numbers internally in an expression containing mixed types to a Common type for evaluation. But sometimes, coerce a number explicitly from one type to another to satisfy the requirements of ________parameter.
