  • We will use the random library to generate random numbers.
  • The number should contain 10 digits.
  • The first digit should start with 9 or 8 or 7 or 6, we will use randint() method.
  • The remaining 9 digits will also be generated using the randint() method.


The generated random phone numbers would looklike:



# import module
import random as r
ph_no = []
# the first number should be in the range of 6 to 9
ph_no.append(r.randint(6, 9))
# the for loop is used to append the other 9 numbers.
# the other 9 numbers can be in the range of 0 to 9.
for i in range(1, 10):
    ph_no.append(r.randint(0, 9))
# printing the number
for i in ph_no:
    print(i, end="")
