# Homework 3c — Lists

## 1. Big and small words

This program will print out words that are “smaller” and “bigger” than a boundary word, using alphabetical order. Write a program that:

• Gets a list of words, ending with a blank line.
• Gets a boundary word.
• Prints the total number of words.
• Prints the words that come alphabetically before the boundary word.
• Prints the words that come alphabetically after the boundary word.

Here is some sample input and output from the program:

``````Word: fantastic
Word: stupendous
Word: marvelous
Word: wonderful
Word: beautiful
Word: amazing
Word: great
Word:
Boundary: honorable
You have 7 words
These are small:

You can find starter code in `words.py`.

## 2. Custom bullets

• Get a list of words, ending with a blank line.
• Get a list of bullets, ending with a blank line.
• Print the list multiple times, once with each type of bullet.

Here is some sample input and output for the program:

``````Item: Soul

Item: Wall-e
Item: Finding Nemo
Item: A Bug's Life
Item:

Custom Bullet Point: *
Custom Bullet Point: o
Custom Bullet Point: -

* A Bug's Life

o Soul

You can find starter code in `custom_bullets.py`.

## 3. Compare lists

Write a program that compares how many fruits you eat with how many vegetables you eat. The program should:

• Get a list of fruits, ending with a blank line.
• Get a list of vegetables, ending with a blank line.
• If the list of fruits is longer:
• Prints the list of fruits
• Prints the list of vegetables
• Prints “You need more vegetables!”
• If the list of vegetables is longer:
• Prints the list of vegetables
• Prints the list of fruits
• Prints “You need more fruit!”
• If the lists are the same length:
• Prints the list of fruits
• Prints the list of vegetables
• What a healthy balanced diet! (the lists are equal lengths)

Here is some sample input and output for the program:

``````Enter a Fruit: apple

Enter a Vegetable: squash
Enter a Vegetable:
Vegetables:
- carrot
- squash
Fruits:
- apple
You need more fruit!``````
