Some points of difference that make Python 3 better than Python 2 are- 

  • Python 3 syntax is simpler and more comprehendible than Python 2.  
  • Unicode is the default storing of strings for Python 3, whereas Python 2 stores requirements include defining Unicode string value with “u’’  
  • Python 3 offers parenthesis for enclosing the exceptions, whereas Python 2 includes notations.  
  • The rules of ordering comparisons in Python 3 are more straightforward than the Python 2 rules. 
  • The value of variables in Python 3 does not change, whereas the value of the global variable changes in Python 2 (while using the statement inside the for loop)  
  • The range () is used to perform iterations in Python 3; however, Python 2 uses the range() for iterations.  

An online Python quiz is one of the ways candidates can test their Python skills. Some online portals offer quizzes that include relevant and frequently asked questions. It is open to candidates at different levels, including beginner, intermediate, or experienced professionals.
