Python Exercise
Part 1: A word, such as “hello”, is a list of letters. So, the concept of frequent property can be applied to words as well. For example, “keen”, “polo” and “sins” are frequently equal; “assassins” is frequently more than “aardvark”, which in turn is frequently more than “zebras”.
i) The file “words.txt” contains a very long list of English words. Write a function, readWords(), to load this file into a list. Before attempting this question, it is advisable to peek ahead at the next question to help choosing the most appropriate representation for the list of words.Verify that the solution works by writing the content of the list onto another file, for example, “frequent.txt”. Then compare the two files, for example, using the terminal command:diff words.txt frequent.txt
ii) Write a function, sortWords(words), to sort the list of words (see part (i)) according to “frequently more” relation. For example, “assassins” should appear before “aardvark”. Frequently equal words should appear in alphabetical order. For example, “daddy” should appear before “mummy”.Test the function to sample the first 20, the last 20 and some other 20 in the middle.
iii) Write a function, findEqual(words, word), to list all entries in words that are frequently equal to the given word.
