How to drop ROW and COLUMN in a Pandas DataFrame in Python
To drop a row or column in a PandasDataFrame in Python, you can use the drop method. The drop method takes two main arguments: the index or labels of the rows/columns to be removed, and the axis (0 for rows and 1 for columns) on which the operation should be performed.
For example, if you want to drop the third row in a DataFramedf, you would use the following code:
df.drop(2, axis=0, inplace=True)
This will remove the third row from the DataFrame, and the inplace=True argument is used to make the change permanent.
Similarly, If you want to drop a column from a DataFrame, you can pass the column label in the drop() method with axis=1
df.drop("column_name", axis=1, inplace=True)
Note that the drop() method does not modify the original DataFrame by default, so if you want the changes to be permanent, you should set the inplace parameter to True.
Also to drop multiple rows and columns, you can pass the list of index/label as input in the drop method, this will drop all the rows/columns in the list.
