This challenge video will exercise several of the techniques covered in this chapter.
- [Instructor] In this chapter,…we've seen how you can use comprehensions and collections…to answer simple or complicated questions…about the set of data.…In our examples, it was Olympic gold medalists.…For your challenge,…I'd like you to answer two more questions.…Who were the five athletes who won the most medals?…And who were the five who won them in the most events?…The second task is going to be a little harder.…You should be able to take the code that we wrote together…and to modify it for this purpose.…
A hint,…the same event may be described…with slightly different names…and different points in the database.…Good luck.…
