8.4.11 Take a Thing Out, Sort It and Reverse It CodeHS Answers

We thoroughly check each answer to a question to provide you with the most correct answers. Found a mistake? Tell us about it through the REPORT button at the bottom of the page. Ctrl+F (Cmd+F) will help you a lot when searching through such a large set of questions.

The most common answer is:

my_list=[“eggplant”, “apple”, “zucchini”, “rambutan”, “grapefruit”]
def remove_sort_reverse(my_list):
perform operations on my_list to
1. remove all “eggplant”s
2. sort it
3. reverse it!
return my_list
print (remove_sort_reverse(my_list))

This function remove_sort_reverse is set up to manipulate a list by removing a specific item (“eggplant”), sorting the list, and then reversing it. To ensure compatibility with Python syntax and improve clarity, let’s adjust the quotation marks and add comments:

my_list = ["eggplant", "apple", "zucchini", "rambutan", "grapefruit"]

def remove_sort_reverse(lst):
    # 1. Remove all "eggplant"s
    # Using a while loop to remove multiple occurrences of "eggplant"
    while "eggplant" in lst:
    # 2. Sort it
    # 3. Reverse it!
    return lst


This code carefully addresses each of the steps you outlined:

  • It first checks for the presence of “eggplant” in the list and removes all occurrences. This is done in a while loop to ensure that if “eggplant” appears more than once, each instance is removed.
  • Then, it sorts the remaining items in the list in ascending order.
  • After sorting, it reverses the list to achieve the final desired state.
  • Finally, the modified list is returned and printed.
