Python NumPy For Your Grandma - 3.9 Challenge: Professor Prick

Setup

You’re a vindictive, hateful professor and one of your pet peeves is when students rush through their exams. To teach them a lesson, you decide to give 0s to the first three students who score less than sixty, in the order they turned in their exams. So, given a 1d array of integers, identify the first three values less than sixty and replace them with zero.

import numpy as np

generator = np.random.default_rng(80085)
scores = np.round(generator.uniform(low=30, high=100, size=15))
print(scores)
## [68. 36. 76. 57. 56. 54. 63. 64. 36. 88. 80. 82. 84. 76. 42.]

Solution

scores[(scores < 60).nonzero()[0][:3]] = 0
print(scores)
## [68.  0. 76.  0.  0. 54. 63. 64. 36. 88. 80. 82. 84. 76. 42.]
