  • len(s)

    Python also provides a built-in function that enables getting the length of a string (or another container which we will cover later in the course). We can use len() to get the length of a string:
    a = 'some random string'
    print(len(a))
    This program prints 18.

    Challenge

    Given 3 strings, print the shortest one on the first line followed by the longest on the second line. If there are two strings with the same length, the checking system expects the program to print the first one from the input.
    Input
    Output
    short one the very very long long string with many words some medium string here
    short one the very very long long string with many words
