A tuple is created in a similar way as a list but the values are included in ().


tup3 = "a", "b", "c", "d";
tup1 = ();
Access Tuple
tup1 = ('a', 'b', 1, 2);
tup2 = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 );
print "tup1[0]: ", tup1[0];
print "tup2[1:5]: ", tup2[1:5];


tup1[0]: a
tup2[1:5]: [2,3,4,5]

  Tuple is a collection of Python objects.it is similar to a list. The difference between the two is that we cannot change the elements of a tuple once it is assigned whereas in a list, elements can be changed.A tuple is created by placing all the items (elements) inside a parentheses (), separated by comma.


# One way of creation

tup = 'rajesh', 'kumar'


  # Another for doing the same

tup = ('rajesh', 'kumar')



   ('rajesh', 'kumar')
   ('rajesh', 'kumar')
