Introduction
Tuple basics
3. Defining a tuple with one or zero elements
Tuples in functions
Summary

## Instruction

Good job! There are two special cases for defining tuples. If you want to create an empty tuple, you must use empty parentheses parentheses:

empty_tuple = ()

What if you want to create a tuple with a single item? You may use parentheses parentheses or not, but you must include a trailing comma:

single_item_tuple = (1,)

Without the comma, single_item_tuple will be an ordinary integer – even if you surround it with parentheses parentheses.

When you print such a tuple, the trailing comma will also be displayed.

print(single_item_tuple)

Result: (1,)

## Exercise

Create a tuple named from_city with a single item: 'Paris'. Then print its value to the console.
