  1. Start from a Python list containing both integers and floating point values, and construct then a NumPy array from the list.

  2. Generate a 1D NumPy array containing all numbers from -2.0 to 2.0 with a spacing of 0.2. Use optional start and step arguments of the np.arange() function.

  3. Generate another 1D NumPy array containing 11 equally spaced values between 0.5 and 1.5.
