Guys, it could be a nice idea to write the possible questions of the future programming quiz underneath. In this way if we all think of a question we can share it and read the others as well.

The only examples I've heard so far are:

What is the outcome of this function?

How does quick sort work?

Well, I'm not sure if those can be considered "too obvious" questions or "too basic" but maybe they could ask stuff like:

  • How is a function defined?
  • Given this snippet of a code, what error will it raise?
  • What is recursion? or maybe why is it used?
  • What are iterative control structures?
  • Given this kind of problem, which data type or what approach would be more suitable?
  • What are some lists characteristics? or What are the most useful methods for strings/lists? ( or lists)
  • Maybe what is object-oriented programming? 
  • or What requirements does a recursive function need to meet in order to be a properly designed one? (its in the slides)


These are the ones I could think of but eh I don't know

Technically, yeah. You need to book a place on the Prodigit website at the Lab 15 or Lab 17 of the RM025 for Wednesday 22th Dec. If you haven't done it yet, doooo ittt, you can't book after Sunday

check out the python quizzes on realpython.com there is a lot.

I think they might be of similar type as the exam??

Also this one was good
