There are no such things as arrays in Python, silly!
I can help you with a two-dimensional list, though :)

Okay, imagine that a list of integers (or any other objects) is a single 
object itself,
that keeps track of the integers (or other objects) for you in whatever 
order you want.
somelist = [1,2,3,4,5]
anotherlist = [6,7,8,9,10]

Now what you want out of a two-dimensional list is
where there are multiple inner lists, with each individual
list being a full row, right?
two_dimensional = [somelist,anotherlist]

two_dimensional = [ [1,2,3,4,5] , [6,7,8,9,10] ]

This isn't a homework question, right?

Good luck,
