Question 31.
How will you import modules in python?
We can import the definitions inside a module to another module. We use the import keyword . to do this. To import the module factorial we type the following in the Python prompt.
>> import factorial
Using the module name we can access the functions defined inside the module. The dot(.) operator is used to access the functions. The syntax for accessing the functions from the module is
<module name><function name>
For example:
Tamil Nadu 12th Computer Science Model Question Paper 3 English Medium 1
>>> factorial.fact(5)

Question 32.
Write a command to populate record in a table.
To populate (add record) the table “INSERT” command is passed to SQLite. “execute” method executes the SQL command to perform some action. In most cases, you will not literally insert data into a SQL table. You will rather have a lot of data inside of some Python data type e.g. a dictionary or a list, which has to be used as the input of the insert statement.

Question 33.
Design an algorithm to find square of the given number and display the result.
Problem: Design an algorithm to find square of the given number and display the result. The algorithm can be written as:
Step 1 – start the process
Step 2 – get the input x
Step 3 – calculate the square by multiplying the input value ie., square ← x * x
Step 4 – display the result square
Step 5 – stop
Algorithm could be designed to get a solution of a given problem. A problem can be solved in many ways. Among many algorithms the optimistic one can be taken for implementation.

Question 34 (a).
Explain about any 3 string operators in python with suitable example.
String Operators
Python provides the following operators for string operations. These operators are useful to manipulate string.
(i) Concatenation (+)
Joining of two or more strings is called as Concatenation. The plus (+) operator is used to concatenate strings in python.
>>> “welcome” + “Python”

(ii) Append (+ =)
Adding more strings at the end of an existing string is known as append. The operator += is used to append a new string with an existing string.
Example .
>>> strl =” Welcome to ”
>>> strl+=”Leam Python”
>>> print (strl)
Welcome to Learn Python

(iii) Repeating (*)
The multiplication operator (*) is used to display a string in multiple number of times.
>>> strl = “Welcome ”
>>> print (strl *4)
Welcome Welcome Welcome Welcome

(iv) String slicing
Slice is a substring of a main string. A substring can be taken from the original string by using [ ] operator and index or subscript values. Thus, [ ] is also known as slicing operator. Using slice operator, you have to slice one or more substrings from a main string.
General format of slice operation:
str [start:end]
Where start is the beginning index and end is the last index value of a character in the string. Python takes the end value less than one from the actual index specified. For example, if you want to slice first 4 characters from a string, you have to specify it as 0 to 5. Because, python consider only the end value as n-1.
Example: slice a single character from a string
>>> strl = “THIRUKKURAL”
>>> print (strl[0])

(v) Stride when slicing string
When the slicing operation, you can specify a third argument as the stride, which refers to 1 the number of characters to move forward after the first character is retrieved from the string.
The default value of stride is 1.
>>> strl = “Welcome to learn Python”
>>> print (strl [10:16])
Note: Remember that, python takes the last value as n-1
You can also use negative value as stride (third argument). If you specify a negative value, it prints in reverse order.
>>> strl = “Welcome to learn Python”
>>> print(strl[::-2])
nhy re teolW

val = my_diet.values()
print(‘max value’, max(val))
print(‘min value’, min(val))
max value 5874
min value 500

Question 35 (a).
Write a class with two private class variables and print the sum using a method.
class Sample:
def_init_(self, n1, n2):
self._n1 = n1
self._n2 = n2
def display(self):
print(“class variable 1:”, self._nl)
print(“class variable 2:”, self._n2)
print(“sum :”, self. nl + self._n2)
s = sample(10, 20)
class variable 1 : 10
class variable 2 : 20
sum : 30


(b) What are the various processing skills of SQL?
The various processing skills of SQL are :

  1. Data Definition Language (DDL) : The SQL DDL provides commands for defining relation schemes (structure), deleting relations, creating indexes and modifying relation schemes.
  2. Data Manipulation Language (DML): The SQL DML includes commands to insert, delete, and modify tuples in the database.
  3. Embedded Data Manipulation Language : The embedded form of SQL is used in high level programming languages.
  4. View Definition : The SQL also includes commands for defining views of tables.
  5. Authorization : The SQL includes commands for access rights to relations and views of tables.
  6. Integrity’: The SQL provides forms for integrity checking using condition.
  7. Transaction control : The SQL includes commands for file transactions and control over transaction processing.

Tamil Nadu 12th Computer Science Model Question Paper 3 English Medium 2
Home Button → The Home Button will help once you have begun navigating your chart. If you ever want to return back to the original view, you can click on this.

Forward/Back buttons → These buttons can be used like the Forward and Back buttons in your browser. You can click these to move back to the previous point you were at, or forward again.

Pan Axis → This cross-looking button allows you to click it, and then click and drag your graph around.

Zoom → The Zoom button lets you click on it, then click and drag a square that you would like I to zoom into specifically. Zooming in will require a left click and drag. You can alternatively zoom out with a right click and drag.

Configure Subplots → This button allows you to configure various spacing options with your figure and plot.

Save Figure → This button will allow you to save your figure in various forms.

Question 37 (a).
Explain the purposes of
(a) pltxlabel
(b) plt.ylabel
(c) plt.title
(d) plt.legend()
After installing Matplotlib, we will begin coding by importing Matplotlib using the command: import matplotlib.pyplot as pit
Now you have imported Matplotlib in your workspace. You need to display the plots. Using Matplotlib from within a Python script, you have to add method inside the file to display your plot.

With plt.xlabel and plt.ylabel, you can assign labels to those respective axis. Next, you can assign the plot’s title with plt.title, and then you can invoke the default legend with pit.
plt.plot (years, total_populations)
plt.title (“Year vs Population in India”)
plt.xlabel (“Year”)
plt.ylabel (“Total Population”)
Plt.title() → specifies title to the graph
Plt.xlabel() → specifies label for X-axis
Plt.ylabel() → specifies label for Y-axis

5. 1) CR (carriage return)
2) It moves the cursor to the beginning of same line

Question 38 (a).
Explain If and If…. else with sample programs.
Simple if statement
Simple if is the simplest of all decision making statements. Condition should be in the form of relational or logical expression.
if :
statements-block 1
In the above syntax if the condition is true statements – block 1 will be executed.
# Program to check the age and print whether eligible for voting
x = int (input(“Enter your age :”))
if x> = 18:
print (“You are eligible for voting”)
Output 1:
Enter your age : 34
You are eligible for voting Output 2:
Enter your age : 16
As you can see in the second execution no output will be printed, only the Python prompt will be displayed because the program does not check the alternative process when the condition is failed.

if..else statement:
The if., else statement provides control to check the true block as well as the false block. Following is the syntax of ‘if.else’ statement.
Tamil Nadu 12th Computer Science Model Question Paper 3 English Medium 4
if :
statements-block 1
statements-block 2
if.else statement thus provides two possibilities and the condition determines which BLOCK is to be executed.
Example: #Program to check if the accepted number odd or even
a = int(input(“Enter any number :”))
if a%2 == 0:
print (a,” is an even number”)
print (a, ” is an odd number”)
Output 1:
Enter any number :56
56 is an even number
Output 2:
Enter any number :67
67 is an odd number
An alternate method to rewrite the above program is also available in Python. The complete if.else can also written as:
variable = variable1 if condition else variable 2

(b) Explain while loop with sample program.
while loop
The syntax of while loop in Python has the following syntax:
Tamil Nadu 12th Computer Science Model Question Paper 3 English Medium 5
while :
statements block 1
statements block 2]
In the while loop, the condition is any valid Boolean expression returning True or False. The else part of while is optional part of while. The statements blockl is kept executed till the condition is True. If the else part is written, it is executed when the condition is tested False. Recall while loop belongs to entry check loop type, that is it is not executed even once if the condition is tested False in the beginning.
Example: program to illustrate the use of while loop – to print all numbers from 10 to 15
i = 10 # initializing part of the control variable
while (i<= 15): # test condition
print (i,end=’\t’) # statements – block 1
i = i + l # Updation of the control variable
10 11 12 13 14 15
