Colorful Disks by freeman_lex -

Colorful Disks is a game played on a base with vertical stick and some paper disks with a hole in the center. The disks all have different radiuses and colors. When all the disks are stacked on top of each other, the number of colors that can be seen from above is the score in this game. So, disks that cannot be seen from above are not scored.

Given the radiuses of the disks in order of placing on the stick (from the bottom one to the top one), calculate the score when all the disks are stacked.

count_discs((3, 6, 7, 4, 5, 1, 2)) == 3
count_discs((6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)) == 6
count_discs((5,)) == 1


Clean Code in Python -

Clear code is the cornerstone of efficient and maintainable software development. Its importance lies in its ability to be easily understood and modified by developers, leading to faster debugging, smoother collaboration, and reduced chances of errors. Clear code enhances readability, enabling programmers to grasp its logic swiftly and make necessary adjustments with confidence, fostering a sense of clarity and order within the codebase.
