# Python List reverse() method

Python List reverse() method

The list.reverse () method in Python reverses the elements of the list in place.

Syntax

`list.reverse()`

Parameter

NA

Example 1

```# Python program explaining
# the list.reverse() method
weekList = ['Sun','Thurs','Mon','Fri', 'Tues', 'Wed']
print("Actual week list: ",weekList)
# Reversing the week list by calling the reverse() method
weekList.reverse()
# printing the reverse week list
print("Reversed week list:",weekList) ```

Output

```Actual week list:  ['Sun', 'Thurs', 'Mon', 'Fri', 'Tues', 'Wed']
Reversed week list: ['Wed', 'Tues', 'Fri', 'Mon', 'Thurs', 'Sun'] ```

Example 2

```# Python program explaining
# the list.reverse () method
# passing the number list
num = [11, 13, 14, 12,15]
print("Actual List: ",num)
# Sorting list of Integers in descending
num.sort(reverse = True)
# printing the reverse order
print("Reverse List: ",num) ```

Output

```Actual List:  [11, 13, 14, 12, 15]
Reverse List:  [15, 14, 13, 12, 11] ```

Example 3

```# Python program explaining
# the list.reverse() method
# passing the number List
numList = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12]
print("Actual List: ",numList)
# Reversing the Order of the elements
# Syntax: reversed_list = os[start:stop:step]
reversed_list = numList[::-1]
# printing the list
print('Updated List:', reversed_list) ```

Output

```Actual List:  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12]
Updated List: [12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1] ```
