Python type() Function Example 1

The below example shows how to get the type of an object.

Output:

<class 'list'>
<class 'dict'>
<class '__main__.Python'>

Explanation: In the above example, we have taken a List that contains some values, and in return, it prints the type of the List.

In the second case, we have taken a Dict that contains some values, and in return, it prints the type of the Dict.

Then, we have defined a class named as Python and produced an InstanceOfPython which prints its type.
