# Python | Reverse Order Sort in String List

Sometimes, while working with Python, we can have a problem in which we need to perform the reverse sort operation in all the Strings that are present in a list. This problem can occur in general programming and web development. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + `sorted() + join() + reverse`
This is one way in which this problem can be solved. In this, we use sorted() functionality to perform sort operation and join() is used to reconstruct the string list. The reverse logic is implemented by passing “reverse” as True parameter to sorted().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Reverse Order Sort in String List ` `# using list comprehension + sorted() + join() + reverse ` ` `  `# initialize list  ` `test_list ``=` `[``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'good'``]  ` ` `  `# printing original list  ` `print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))  ` ` `  `# Reverse Order Sort in String List ` `# using list comprehension + sorted() + join() + reverse ` `res ``=` `[''.join(``sorted``(ele, reverse ``=` `True``)) ``for` `ele ``in` `test_list]  ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"List after string reverse sorting : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output :

```The original list : ['gfg', 'is', 'good']
List after string reverse sorting : ['ggf', 'si', 'oogd']
```

Method #2 : Using `map() + sorted() + reverse + join()` + lambda
The combination of above method can also be used to perform this task. In this, we perform the functionality of traversal using map() and lambda rather than list comprehension. The reverse logic is implemented by passing “reverse” as True parameter to sorted().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Reverse Order Sort in String List ` `# using map() + sorted() + join() + lambda + reverse ` ` `  `# initialize list  ` `test_list ``=` `[``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'good'``]  ` ` `  `# printing original list  ` `print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))  ` ` `  `# Reverse Order Sort in String List? + reverse ` `# using map() + sorted() + join() + lambda  ` `res ``=` `list``(``map``(``lambda` `ele: "".join(``sorted``(ele, reverse ``=` `True``)), test_list))  ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"List after string reverse sorting : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output :

```The original list : ['gfg', 'is', 'good']
List after string reverse sorting : ['ggf', 'si', 'oogd']
```
