Q13. What does this mean: *args, **kwargs? And why would we use it?
Ans. We use *args when we aren’t sure how many arguments are going to be passed to a function, or if we want to pass a stored list or tuple of arguments . to a function. **kwargs is used when we don’t know how many keyword arguments will be passed to a function, or it can be used to pass the values . of a dictionary as keyword arguments. The identifiers args and kwargs are a convention, you could also use *bob and **billy but that would not be, wise.
Q14. What is the Difference between Python 3 and Python 2 ?

It is future of Python designed to address the design flawn in the previous versions.
The print syntax is treated as a statement rather than a function that requires text to be wrapped in parenthesis.
The print is explicitly treated as a function and replaced by the print() function in Python 3 which requires an extra pair of parenthesis.
ASCII string type is used by default to store strings.
Unicode is the implicit string type by default.
It simply returns an integer to the nearest whole number when dividing two integers.
It makes integer division more intuitive by using true division for integers and floats.
xrange function reconstructs the sequence every time.
xrange is replaced by range() function in Python 3.
