a) num1+=  num2 + num3
b) print(num1)
c) num1 = num1 ** (num2 + num3)
d) print(num1)
e) num1**= num2 + c
f) num1 = ‘5’ +’5’
g) print(num1)
h) print(4.00/(2.0 + 2.0))
i) num1 = 2 + 9*((3*12)-8)/10
j) print(num1)
k) num1 = float(10)
l) print(num1)
m) num1 = int(‘3.14’)
n) print(num1)
o) print(10!=9 and 20>=20)
p) print(5 % 10 + 10 < 50 and 29 <= 29)

5. categorize the following as syntax error, logical error or runtime error:
a) 25/0

Ans: Runtime Error (Division by Zero)
b) num1 = 25; num2 = 0; num1/num2

Ans: Runtime Error (Division by Zero)

6. Write a Python program to calculate the amount payable if money has been lent on simple interest. Principal or money lent = P, Rate = R% per annum and Time = T years. Then Simple Interest (SI) = (P x R x T)/100.
Amount payble = Principal + SI.
P, R and T are given as input to the program

i=0; sum = 0
while i < 9 :
if i % 4 == 0:
sum = sum + i
i = i + 2
print (sum)
