I was so hyped to solve this without any help

I have been going-through the Python syllabus for about 3 days and I am at the “Learning about Loops” section. We had added lists to lists on a few of the topics and I was wondering how I could interlace 2 lists. Anyway, after about an hour of staring at the screen and trying different things, I figured it out. Here is the code I wrote:

students_period_A = [“Alex”, “Briana”, “Cheri”, “Daniele”]
students_period_B = [“Dora”, “Minerva”, “Alexa”, “Obie”]

index = 0
for student in students_period_A:
students_period_B.insert(index, student)
index += 2


This was the output:
[‘Alex’, ‘Dora’, ‘Briana’, ‘Minerva’, ‘Cheri’, ‘Alexa’, ‘Daniele’, ‘Obie’]

I know its not a massive achievement but I refused to Google, ChatGPT or use anything, I just starred at the screen and iterated (pun intended) my brain cells until I got the answer.


But, you’re wrong. It is a massive achievement.
You are learning and understanding core coding concepts. Every new thing you learn is building a foundation. Good for you!

Also, it’s okay to google documentation in order to understand how things work. Personally, I wouldn’t rely on ChatGPT so much though.

If you can explain what your code is doing to a duck, then it’s all good.

Happy coding!
