Python program to find the sum of even-numbered elements in a list

This Python program finds the sum of the even-numbered elements in a list. For example, given the input list [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], the program would output 6.

Problem

```Given a list of numbers, write a Python program to find the sum of the even-numbered elements in the list.

```# Solution:

def sum_even(numbers):
sum = 0
for number in numbers:
if number % 2 == 0:
sum += number
return sum

# Explanation:

# The solution above is optimal because it only iterates through the list once.
# It also uses the modulo operator to check if the number is even.
# The modulo operator is a fast way to check if a number is even.
# If the number is even, the modulo operator will return 0.
# If the number is odd, the modulo operator will return 1.
# The modulo operator is faster than using the division operator.
# The division operator will return a float, which is slower than an integer.
# The modulo operator will return an integer.```

A.I. Evaluation of the Solution

The candidate's solution is complete and solves the problem. The candidate's approach is efficient, using the modulo operator to check if a number is even.
