Python provides an array of built-in constants, data types, variables, functions, and exceptions for customizable use. Few of the most widely used datatypes are given below:

  1. Boolean operators - Used for comparing data. Literals used - 'and', 'or', 'not'
  2. Numeric datatype - Used for defining numerical data types. Literals used - 'int', 'float', 'complex'
  3. Sequence datatype - Used to define and perform operations on a collection data type variable. Literals used - 'list', 'tuple', 'range'
  4. Text sequence datatype - Used to define and utilize character arrays in a program. Literal used - 'str'
  5. Mapping datatype - Used for defining a dictionary with words and meanings attached to the words. Literal used - 'dict'

Few of the most usually used functions that are used in Python 3 are given below:

  1. input() - Used to accept an input from the user
  2. len() - Used to find the length of a array or string variable
  3. set() - Creates a set (unstructured collection of items)
  4. max() and min() - Used to find the maximum and minimum length of a string, array or a sequence data variable.
