1. How can I set the seed of the random number generator?
random.seed(). See, for example, "random.seed(): What does it do?"
2. Why can I overwrite "int", but not "for"?
Python uses keywords and literals: "for" is a keyword, "int" is not.
3. How can I remove the character at position n from a string?
In python you cannot directly remove a character from a string by specifying its position in the string. Strings are immutable in python. However, you can create a new string that contains everything from the original string except its character at position n:
s[:n] + s[(n+1):]
4. How do you pronounce the word "tuple"?
There is more than one way to do it :) as an example, see this discussion.
