In this article, we will learn about the solution to the problem statement given below.
Problem statement − We are given a list, we need to display the second largest number in a list.
There are three approaches to solve the problem−
list1 = [11,22,1,2,5,67,21,32] # to get unique elements new_list = set(list1) # removing the largest element from list1 new_list.remove(max(new_list)) # now computing the max element by built-in method? print(max(new_list))
list1 = [11,22,1,2,5,67,21,32] # using built-in sort method list1.sort() # second last element print("Second largest element in the list is:", list1[-2])
Second largest element in the list is: 32
list1 = [11,22,1,2,5,67,21,32] #assuming max_ is equal to maximum of element at 0th and 1st index and secondmax is the minimum among them max_=max(list1,list1) secondmax=min(list1,list1) for i in range(2,len(list1)): # if found element is greater than max_ if list1[i]>max_: secondmax=max_ max_=list1[i] #if found element is greator than secondmax else: if list1[i]>secondmax: secondmax=list1[i] print("Second highest number is the list is : ",str(secondmax))
Second highest number is the list is : 32
In this article, we have learned about how we can find the second largest element in a list.
