Identity: Recap

Give Feedback

Here’s a recap of what you’ve covered about object identity:

  • Object value vs object identity: Objects that have the same value can be separate objects.
  • Small integer caching: The ID of two objects that you might expect to be different can be the same.

Thank you! Came for learning more about variables, did not get disappointed.

I’m a beginner and I’m currently doing the Learning Path: Intro to Python so the quiz is just not fair. We haven’t learned about ranges, for loops or even if statements so although I like a challenge, it would be nice if this was explained before given a quiz like that.

Hi @Anthony, are you following the Learning Path Introduction to Python?

Did you maybe mix up the quizzes somehow? I just clicked through the Python Variables Quiz that follows this course, and it doesn’t include any questions about ranges, loops, or conditionals.

Where did you find the link to the quiz? Let us know so we can double-check that there’s no rogue link anywhere that points to a more advanced quiz too early! Thanks! :)

Hey Martin :)

I am following this link: realpython.com/learning-paths/python3-introduction/ I am basically following that list of courses one after the other. Sorry about the comment but I was thrown off by it. I plan to complete the whole list and move on to the next part.

Martin Breuss RP Team on Jan. 7, 2021

Hi again @Anthony, nice job that you’re going through the whole list! There’s a lot to learn but if you stick with it and keep going, things will start to come together :)

You should see the Learning Path like in this screenshot, which puts the Python Variables Quiz right after this course on Variables in Python.

Click that link and you’ll be in the right quiz that tests the topics covered in this course. Hope that helps and keep learning :)
