You will create your own examples soon enough! :-)
But if you want to see what some look like try the following
(assuming you use Python v3)
Syntax error (The code is not valid python):
>>> print "Python rocks!"
Runtime error (The code is valid but the result is
not due to runtime issues):
>>> foo = 
Semantic error (The code/design is logically wrong even
if valid syntactically)
>>> x = "foo" - 4
Try those in the interpreter and see what happens.
