    5) How memory is managed in Python?

    • Python memory is managed by Python private heap space. All Python objects and data structures are located in a private heap. The programmer does not have an access to this private heap and interpreter takes care of this Python private heap.
    • The allocation of Python heap space for Python objects is done by Python memory
      manager. The core API gives access to some tools for the programmer to code.
    • Python also have an inbuilt garbage collector, which recycle all the unused memory and frees the memory and makes it available to the heap space.

    6) What are the tools that help to find bugs or perform the static analysis?
    PyChecker is a static analysis tool that detects the bugs in Python source code and warns about the style and complexity of the bug. Pylint is another tool that verifies whether the module meets the coding standard.

    7) What are Python decorators?
    A Python decorator is a specific change that we make in Python syntax to alter functions easily.

    8 ) What is the difference between list and tuple?
    The difference between list and tuple is that list is mutable while tuple is not. Tuple can be hashed for e.g as a key for dictionaries.
