## Alphabet Rangoli in Python HackerRank Solutions

### problem

You are given an integer, N. Your task is to print an alphabet rangoli of size N. (Rangoli is a form of Indian folk art based on creation of patterns.)

Different sizes of alphabet rangoli are shown below:

```#size 3
----c----
--c-b-c--
c-b-a-b-c
--c-b-c--
----c----
#size 5
--------e--------
------e-d-e------
----e-d-c-d-e----
--e-d-c-b-c-d-e--
e-d-c-b-a-b-c-d-e
--e-d-c-b-c-d-e--
----e-d-c-d-e----
------e-d-e------
--------e--------
#size 10
------------------j------------------
----------------j-i-j----------------
--------------j-i-h-i-j--------------
------------j-i-h-g-h-i-j------------
----------j-i-h-g-f-g-h-i-j----------
--------j-i-h-g-f-e-f-g-h-i-j--------
------j-i-h-g-f-e-d-e-f-g-h-i-j------
----j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j----
--j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-b-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j--
j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-b-a-b-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j
--j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-b-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j--
----j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j----
------j-i-h-g-f-e-d-e-f-g-h-i-j------
--------j-i-h-g-f-e-f-g-h-i-j--------
----------j-i-h-g-f-g-h-i-j----------
------------j-i-h-g-h-i-j------------
--------------j-i-h-i-j--------------
----------------j-i-j----------------
------------------j------------------
```

The center of the rangoli has the first alphabet letter a, and the boundary has the Nth alphabet letter (in alphabetical order).

#### Input Format :

Only one line of input containing N, the size of the rangoli.

• 0 < N < 27

#### Output Format :

Print the alphabet rangoli in the format explained above.

`5`

#### Sample Output :

```--------e--------
------e-d-e------
----e-d-c-d-e----
--e-d-c-b-c-d-e--
e-d-c-b-a-b-c-d-e
--e-d-c-b-c-d-e--
----e-d-c-d-e----
------e-d-e------
--------e--------```

for i in range(n):
s = "-".join(alpha[i:n])
L.append((s[::-1]+s[1:]).center(4*n-3, "-"))
print('\n'.join(L[:0:-1]+L))
if __name__ == '__main__':
