how can i make np.argmin code without numpy? I’ve been given the challenge to code np.argmin without numpy .
I’ve been thinking hard for about a day..
I have no idea whether I should use a for statement,
an if statement, a while statement, or another function..

First question!

First, I thought about how to express it with an inequality sign to distinguish between cases.

using the if statement

a[0,0] – a[0,1] > 0

a[0,0] – a[0,1] < 0

I tried to write the code by dividing the two cases.

There were too many cases, so I stopped.

Couldn’t it be done with an If statement?

Second question!

We know that the argmin method represents the address of a pointer as an array value.

What is in the screen capture is what I arbitrarily input as a two-dimensional list.

ndarray.

Because the task is limited to receiving a two-dimensional list as input

I thought that the directions of axis=0 and axis=1 are fixed.

Then axis=0 freezes the column and compares row to row

Is it okay to think that axis=1 freezes rows and compares columns to columns?

Third question!

After receiving an arbitrary two-dimensional list, ndarray is

I thought it would be in the form of a matrix of the form ixj.

Then, if you use a.shape, the output value is output as (i , j).

How can we extract i and j here?

It’s really hard to think about all day long.
Any hints would be appreciated.
