Question:

Name and explain the three magic methods of Python that are used in the construction and initialization of custom Objects.

Answer:

The 3 magic methods of Python that are used in the construction and initialization of custom Objects are: init__, new , and del__.
new – this method can be considered as a “constructor”. It is invoked to create an instance of a class with the statement say, myObj = MyClass()
init__ — It is an “initializer”/ “constructor” method. It is invoked whenever any arguments are passed at the time of creating an object. myObj = MyClass(‘Pizza’,25)
del- this method is a “destructor” of the class. Whenever an object is deleted,
invocation of del__ takes place and it defines behaviour during the garbage collection. Note: new , del are rarely used explicitly.
