Second Largest Number in PythonWhen we have a lot of elements in our list, the thought of finding the highest or lowest element can come to our mind and Python has made it much easier for us. In this article, we shall how we can use to find the second largest number in Python from a list.
Let us have a look at the first approach Sorting the list and then print the second last numberThe following program illustrates how we can do it in Python Example  Output: The second largest element of the list is: 30 It's time to go for the explanation part
The second method is to obtain the second largest element of the list by removing the maximum element. Let us see how we can do it. Removing the maximum elementExample  Output: 30 Explanation  Let us understand what we have done in the above program
In the third method, we will use for loop and find the second largest number from the list. Example  Output: Enter number of elements in list: 5 Enter the elements: 10 Enter the elements: 20 Enter the elements: 30 Enter the elements: 40 Enter the elements: 50 The second largest element is: 40 Explanation  Let us have a glance at what we have done here
Traversing the listIn the last program, we will traverse the list to find out the largest number and then make use of conditional statements to find the second largest number from the list. The following program illustrates the same Example  Output: 30 Explanation  Let us understand what we have done in the above program
So, in this article, we got the chance to think out of the box and discover some new ways to develop the logic for finding the second largest number in Python.
