ini_list.sort (key = lambda x: x.split () [ 1 ])

 
# print result

print ( "result" , str (ini_list))

# print starting list

print ( "initial list" , str (ini_list))

  
# code to sort the list

res = sorted (ini_list, key = lambda x: x.split () [ 1 ])

 
# print result

print ( "result" , res)

Exit :

 initial list [’GeeksForGeeks abc’,’ manjeet xab’, ’akshat bac’] result [’GeeksForGeeks abc’,’ akshat bac’, ’manjeet xab’]
