Using the random module in Python

The random module in Python contains a number of random number generators.


#Generate integers between 1,10. The first value should be less than the second.
random.randint(1, 10)


#Generate a randomly selected element from range(start, stop, step)
random.randrange(start, stop[, step])


#Generate a random value from the sequence sequence.
random.choice( ['red', 'black', 'green'] ).


#Shuffles the elements in list in place, so they are in a random order.
