Hey Shekhar,

Thanks for reaching out!

The following line of code:

for i in range(1, n+1)

is the start of a for loop that will iterate over a sequence of numbers generated by the range() function.

Here's a breakdown:

- The range() function includes the start value but excludes the end value. Therefore, range(1, n+1) generates a sequence of numbers starting from 1 and ending at n. To include n in the sequence, you'd specify n+1 as the end value.

- for i in ... iterates over each number in that sequence, and with each iteration, the variable i will take on the next value in the sequence.

For example, if n=5, the loop will iterate over the values 1,2,3,4, and 5. In each iteration, you can use the value of i inside the loop to perform some operation or computation.

For a more in-depth explanation, please refer to the following lecture from the course:

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
