All jupyter notebooks are based on Python 3. Not everything in the notebook may be required for correctly solving the task. There are often different ways of approaching the problem which are equally valid. Notebooks are offered as additonal material to students that attended the exercises and were interested in the code. The notebooks are not a substitute for attending the exercise.
