# Reversing a List in Python

## Reversing a List in Python

Python provides us with various ways of reversing a list. We will go through few of the many techniques on how a list in python can be reversed.
Examples:

```Input : list = [10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15]
Output : [15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10]

Input : list = [4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
Output : [9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4]```

Method 1: Using the reversed() built-in function.
In this method, we neither reverse a list in-place(modify the original list), nor we create any copy of the list. Instead, we get a reverse iterator which we use to cycle through the list.

 `# Reversing a list using reversed()` `def` `Reverse(lst):` `    ``return` `[ele ``for` `ele ``in` `reversed``(lst)]` `     ` `# Driver Code` `lst ``=` `[``10``, ``11``, ``12``, ``13``, ``14``, ``15``]` `print``(Reverse(lst))`

Output:

```[15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10]
```

Method 2: Using the reverse() built-in function.
Using the reverse() method we can reverse the contents of the list object in-place i.e., we don’t need to create a new list instead we just copy the existing elements to the original list in reverse order. This method directly modifies the original list.

 `# Reversing a list using reverse()` `def` `Reverse(lst):` `    ``lst.reverse()` `    ``return` `lst` `     ` `lst ``=` `[``10``, ``11``, ``12``, ``13``, ``14``, ``15``]` `print``(Reverse(lst))`

Output:

```[15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10]
```

Method 3: Using the slicing technique.
In this technique, a copy of the list is made and the list is not sorted in-place. Creating a copy requires more space to hold all of the existing elements. This exhausts more memory.

 `# Reversing a list using slicing technique` `def` `Reverse(lst):` `    ``new_lst ``=` `lst[::``-``1``]` `    ``return` `new_lst` `     ` `lst ``=` `[``10``, ``11``, ``12``, ``13``, ``14``, ``15``]` `print``(Reverse(lst))`

Output:

`[15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10]`
