Python Data Structures

Creating a Tuple Creating a Tuple

In Python, a tuple is a data structure that consists of a sequence of values (elements) enclosed in parentheses, with elements separated by commas. Tuples are similar to lists, but the key distinction is that tuples are immutable data structures.

Immutable data structures can't be modified after they're created. Tuples, just like lists, can hold any number of elements, and the data type of each element can vary. It's crucial to note that a tuple with only one element is defined with a comma following the element, as shown:


As demonstrated in the example, you need to add a comma after the single element to create a valid one-element tuple.

Let's explore how to create tuples.

Creating an empty tuple:

Creating a tuple with strings:

Creating a tuple using the tuple() function:


You need to create a tuple containing strings, such as:

'apple', 'apricot', 'banana', 'grape', 'mango', 'peach', 'pineapple'.
