# Final Exam: Question 8: same structure

 0 Sir, you have said in the question that "if lists contain the same elements in the same structure ...", but sample outputs show that the two given input lists p and q need not contain "same elements", but same number of elements. Ex: 1st sample output (i agree with all other statements you have specified). This is what i have interpreted from the question. correct me if i am wrong sir. asked 02 Apr '12, 09:31 niranjan-1 4●1●2●2 accept rate: 0%

 0 Given the examples given in the homework description, I would agree with your interpretation. [1, 2] has not the same structure as [1,2,3] or ['ab'] or [1, [2]] but has the same structure as ['a', 'b']. print same_structure([1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]], ['a', ['b', ['c', ['d', 'e']]]]) >>> True print same_structure([1, [2, [3, [4, 5]]]], ['a', ['b', ['c', ['de']]]]) >>> False  answered 02 Apr '12, 09:37 Elise 3.7k●5●16●56

 -1 I have a deliciously clever way to do this, but as I'm not allowed to tell, I won't! Mwahahaha! answered 02 Apr '12, 15:17 Charles Lin 9.2k●42●94●135 how does one evaluate [] element in the list to compare structure? For example if value of a is integer and value of b is [] structurally they are not the same. In this case how does evaluate b. I tried a == [] or b == []. For some reason it doesn't work.
