The most direct way to copy a list in Python is via the
sourceListand assigns it the values
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5].
targetListand assigns it the value of
copymethod is used to create a shallow copy of the
sourceListobject. This means that a new list is created with the same elements as
sourceList, but the new list and the original list are two separate objects in memory, and changes to one will not affect the other.
forloop in the code iterates over the elements of the list
targetList. For each iteration, the current element is stored in the variable
iduring each iteration of the loop. The
endparameter is set to a space character, so that the numbers are printed on the same line with a space between each number.
targetListhave been processed.
So, the code creates a source list, creates a copy of the source list, and then prints all the elements of the copy, separated by a space.
sourceList = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] targetList = sourceList.copy() for i in targetList: print(i, end=" ")
1 2 3 4 5
