Can anyone list down different methods to find the ‘nth’ largest values using NumPy only? I wanted to implement this functionality in my code assignment but I am facing an issue to implement this using NumPy, the only method I do know of is how to extract the ‘nth’ largest value using a Python for loop (pasting below for reference), which is not efficient at all.

Hello @safiaa.02, if you want to find the `n`

largest values in a NumPy array using NumPy, you can use the `np.sort()`

function along with array slicing. Here is an example code that finds the `3`

largest values in an array:

- The
`np.sort()`

function sorts the array in ascending order by default. - To get the largest values, the code reverses the sorted array using the
`[::-1]`

slicing syntax. - Finally, the first
`n`

elements of the reversed array are selected to get the`n`

largest values.

I hope this code helps!
