Python | Returning the index of a sorted list

Examples :

  Input:  [2, 3, 1, 4, 5]  Output:  [2 , 0, 1, 3, 4] After sorting list becomes [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] and their index as [2, 0, 1, 3, 4]  Input:  [6 , 4, 7, 8, 1]  Output:  [4, 1, 0, 2, 3] After sorting the list becomes [1, 4, 6, 7, 8] and their index as [ 4, 1, 0, 2, 3]. 

Method 1

import numpy

s = numpy.array ([ 2 , 3 , 1 , 4 , 5 ])

sort_index = numpy.argsort (s)

print (sort_index)

Output:

 [2, 0, 1, 3, 4] 

Method 2

s = [ 2 , 3 , 1 , 4 , 5 ]

li = []

 

for i in range ( len (s)):

  li.append ([s [i], i ])

li.sort ()

sort_index = []

 

for x in li:

sort_index.append (x [ 1 ])

 

print (sort_index)

Output:

 [2, 0, 1, 3, 4]
