b = "Hello, have a good day"
for i in b:
  if i not in a:
    b = b[:b.index(i)]+b[b.index(i)+1:]
print b

Level 2

Write a program to find out the largest and smallest word in the string "This is an umbrella".
a = "This is an umbrella"
a = a.split()
maxx = a[0]
max_len = len(a[0])
for i in a:
  if len(i)>max_len:
    max_len = len(i)
    maxx = i
print maxx
#similarly find minimum

Write a program to check if a given string is a Palindrome.
A palindrome reads same from front and back e.g.- aba, ccaacc, mom, etc.
a = raw_input()
#a[:] will give the whole string
print a[:]
#a[::-1] -1 is step. It will reverse the string
print a[::-1]
print a == a[::-1]
#There are lot of other ways to solve this problem

Write a program to make a new string with the word "the" deleted in the sentence "This is the lion in the cage".
a = "This is the lion in the cage"

for i in a:
  if i == "the":
    #a.index(i) will give the index of i in a
print a
print " ".join(a)

Write a program to check if the two strings entered by user are anagrams or not. Two words are said to be anagrams if the letters of one word can be rearranged to form the other word. For example, jaxa and ajax are anagrams of each other.
