Environment: Python 3.8

Key technique: split

A sentence is a list of words that are separated by a single space with no leading or trailing spaces.

You are given an array of strings sentences, where each sentences[i] represents a single sentence.

Return the maximum number of words that appear in a single sentence.

Example 1:

Input: sentences = ["alice and bob love leetcode", "i think so too", "this is great thanks very much"]
Output: 6
- The first sentence, "alice and bob love leetcode", has 5 words in total.
- The second sentence, "i think so too", has 4 words in total.
- The third sentence, "this is great thanks very much", has 6 words in total.
Thus, the maximum number of words in a single sentence comes from the third sentence, which has 6 words.


  1. Use len(i.split(“ “) to get each sentence word number.
  2. Return maximum number.


class Solution:
def mostWordsFound(self, sentences):
for i in sentences:
temp=len(i.split(" "))
if temp >ans:
return ans
