When it is required to return the length of the longest word from a list of words, a method is defined that takes a list as parameter. It checks if an element is in the list and depending on this, the output is displayed.
Below is a demonstration of the same
def find_longest_length(my_list): max_length = len(my_list) temp = my_list for element in my_list: if(len(element) > max_length): max_length = len(element) temp = element return max_length my_list = ["ab", "abc", "abcd", "abcde"] print("The list is :") print(my_list) print("The result is :") print(find_longest_length(my_list))
The list is : ['ab', 'abc', 'abcd', 'abcde'] The result is : 5
A method named ‘find_longest_length’ is defined that takes a list as parameter.
The length of the list is assigned to a variable.
The list is iterated over, and every element’s length is checked to see if it is greater than length of the first element of the list.
If so, this is assigned as the maximum length.
It is returned as output.
Outside the method, a list is defined and is displayed on the console.
The method is called by passing the required parameters.
The output is displayed on the console.
