How can someone access the index itself for a list like the following :

intg = [8, 23, 45, 12, 78, 90]

When for is used to loop through, How can I access the loop index, from 1 to 6 in this case?

An additional state variable such as an index variable is considered non-pythonic which we normally use in languages like C or PHP.

We can use the built in function available in both Python 2 and 3 enumerate() it’s a better option

foridx, valin enumerate(intg):

print(idx, val)

There are some other methods too but this is the easiest and fastest one.

Hope this will help you.

It is very simple you can start it from 1 other than 0:

for index, item in enumerate(iterable, start=1):

   print index, item

You can use the following video tutorials to clear all your doubts:-
