 `# importing libraries ` `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `# sort along the first axis ` `a ``=` `np.array([[``12``, ``15``], [``10``, ``1``]]) ` `arr1 ``=` `np.sort(a, axis ``=` `0``)         ` `print` `(``"Along first axis : \n"``, arr1)         ` ` `  ` `  `# sort along the last axis ` `a ``=` `np.array([[``10``, ``15``], [``12``, ``1``]]) ` `arr2 ``=` `np.sort(a, axis ``=` `-``1``)         ` `print` `(``"\nAlong first axis : \n"``, arr2) ` ` `  ` `  `a ``=` `np.array([[``12``, ``15``], [``10``, ``1``]]) ` `arr1 ``=` `np.sort(a, axis ``=` `None``)         ` `print` `(``"\nAlong none axis : \n"``, arr1) `

Output :

```Along first axis :
