To find the size of a list, use the builtin function, len. The python docs state:
"len(arg) returns the length (the number of items) of an object. The argument may be a sequence (such as a string, bytes, tuple, list, or range) or a collection (such as a dictionary, set, or frozen set)."
len is a builtin and can also be used on user defined classes that implement __len__. So this operation may be O(n) or O(1) depending on the implementation of __len__.
list1 = [1, 2, "Hello"] print(len(list1)) my_str = "Hello" print(my_str)
This will give the output −
