The ndim attribute in NumPy provides information about the number of dimensions or axes in an array. In your code, the array a is a one-dimensional array, often referred to as a vector or a 1D array. Despite having three elements [1, 2, 3, 4], it is considered a 1D array because the elements are arranged in a single dimension or row.
To create a three-dimensional (3D) array, you need to use nested lists or arrays to represent multiple dimensions. Here's an example:
import numpy as np
a = np.array([[[1, 2, 3],
[4, 5, 6],
[7, 8, 9]]])
In this case, a is a 3D array as it contains three levels of nesting, representing three dimensions. The ndim attribute will output 3 in this example.
