Top 20 Python interview questions for IT professionals

Aspiring for a Python job? Odds are you will be required to show that you know how to write Python code. In this post, we’ve added top 20 Python interview questions that cover a variety of skills related to Python. All the interview questions will help you focus on the language itself, and not any specific package or framework. We believe that a real test of any programmer is to test him/her with code snippets. This is not possible with a simple Python tutorial or a mere set of sample questions. That’s why we decided to bring another Python quiz for our readers. This quiz is designed with two objectives that it would help you crack your Python interview and be a better Python programmer.

Python makes complex things easy so programmers can concentrate on the business logic rather than falling into the nitty-gritty of low-level details. Python has many usages like web applications, test automation, scientific modelling, big data applications and many more. It’s also often used as an intermediate layer to get other languages and components to execute easily. Another key information for everyone reading this post is that he/she would need a Python shell to solve the questions given in this quiz. So, use the following Python online shells to test the Python code snippets: Python 2.7 online shell and Python 3.0 online shell.
