Nested Lists

Given the names and grades for each student in a class of students N, store them in a nested list and print the name(s) of any student(s) having the second lowest grade.

Example

The ordered list of scores is , so the second lowest score is . There are two students with that score: . Ordered alphabetically, the names are printed as:

alpha
beta

Input Format

The first line contains an integer, N , the number of students.
The 2N subsequent lines describe each student over 2 lines.
- The first line contains a student’s name.
- The second line contains their grade.

Constraints

  • 2 ≤ N ≤ 5
  • There will always be one or more students having the second lowest grade.

Output Format

Solution(Python3):

if __name__ == '__main__':n = int(input())marksheet = [[input(), float(input())] for _ in range(n)]second_highest = sorted(list(set([marks for name, marks in marksheet])))[1]print('\n'.join([a for a, b in sorted(marksheet) if b == second_highest]))
