The list of predictions have None as elements inside it. I am confused why it is so?

Thanks a lot!


I put the following code inside the for loop to print trees which classified unlabeled_point as None.

for i in range(20):

  prediction = classify(unlabeled_point, subset_tree)
  if prediction is None:

Then I found that the displayed trees cannot actually classify the unlabeled_point (because there are not enough branches). Depending on subset of data it seems possible that the given function build_tree() creates such a tree.

why we use random.seed().Can anyone explain please?thanks you!

If we use the same random.seed, we can reproduce the same results. It is random, but it is the SAME random.
