```Dear all,

I have an iterable of three elements . i want to assign first value of the
iterable to name a, second value to  name b and third value to name c .
Just need to know that the following examples are correct  usage or not.
a,  b,  c =  ["A",  "B",  "C"]
# List is an iterable, will assign "A" to name a , "B" to name b, "C" to
name c.
a,  b,  c = ("A",  "B",  "C")
# Tuple is also iterable , will assign
"A" to name a , "B" to name b, "C" to name c.
a,  b,  c = {"A",  "B",  "C"}
# Set  as iterable, will assign "A" to name a , "B" to name b, "C" to
name c.
a, b, c = range(3)
#  range as an iterable, will assign  0 to name a , 1 to name b, 2 to
name c.
a, b, c = {"A":1, "B":2, "C":3}                                           #
Dict as iterable, will assign "A" to name a , "B" to name b, "C" to name c.
a, b, c = (i for i in range(1, 7) if (i/2).is_integer())            #
Generator expression(that returns an iterator) , will assign 2 to name a ,
4  to name b, 6 to name c.
a, b, c =
"ABC"                                                               #
Strings are iterables, will assign "A" to name a , "B" to name b, "C" to
name c.
