HELP WITH PYTHON CODE
a. Consider this data sequence: “3 11 5 5 5 2 4 6 6 7 3 -8”. Any value that is the same as the immediately preceding value is considered a CONSECUTIVE DUPLICATE. In this example, there are three such consecutive duplicates: the 2nd and 3rd 5s and the second 6. Note that the last 3 is not a consecutive duplicate because it was preceded by a 7. Write some code that uses a loop to read such a sequence of non-negative integers, terminated by a negative number. When the code finishes executing, the number of consecutive duplicates encountered is printed. In this case,3 would be printed.

b. Consider this data sequence: “fish bird reptile reptile bird bird bird mammal fish”. Let's define a SINGLETON to be a data element that is not repeated immediately before or after itself in the sequence. So, here there are four SINGLETONs (the first appearance of “fish”, the first appearance of “bird”, “mammal”, and the second appearance of “fish”). Write some code that uses a loop to read a sequence of words, terminated by the “xxxxx”. The code assigns to the variable n the number of SINGLETONs that were read. (For example in the above data sequence it would assign 4 to n. Assume that n has not been initialized. Assume that there will be at least one word before the terminating “xxxxx”.
