Is using [::-1] in python to reverse a list O(1) space?

I wish this help you You are right that some_list[::-1] creates a new list, and that that list will have n "slots", and thus need O(n) memory.
Furthermore in CPython [GitHub], an interpreter of Python, the .reverse() is done in O(1) memory. Indeed, if we look at the reverse method [GitHub], we see:
code :
/*[clinic input]
Reverse *IN PLACE*.
[clinic start generated code]*/

static PyObject *
list_reverse_impl(PyListObject *self)
/*[clinic end generated code: output=482544fc451abea9 input=eefd4c3ae1bc9887]*/
    if (Py_SIZE(self) > 1)
        reverse_slice(self->ob_item, self->ob_item + Py_SIZE(self));
/* Reverse a slice of a list in place, from lo up to (exclusive) hi. */
static void
reverse_slice(PyObject **lo, PyObject **hi)
    assert(lo && hi);

    while (lo < hi) {
        PyObject *t = *lo;
        *lo = *hi;
        *hi = t;

how to reverse a list with O(1) space and O(n) time?

this one helps. Just read one of the following. It is the thing you're talking about.
Please note that we're talking about singly 'linked' lists.

Reverse a linked list using constant amount of addtional space

Hope this helps since you're creating new instance of linked list - you will have 2 copies of list in memory. The list will contain references to objects, so if you want to count instances of objects - then you are safe and amount of additional memory is O(1). But list itself takes some memory, so if you count number of "cells" in lists - then yes, you have O(N) additional memory being used.

Python Sorting list of tuples reverse by value and non-reverse by key (two different ways)

may help you . The title is rather confusing but the question is rather straightforward. , In this specific case the problem is easy...
code :
L.sort(key = lambda x : (-x[1], x[0]))

Does that help I'm assuming your newline character is \n and not /n as you've posted.

reverse print an immutable linked list with less than O(n) space

hope this fix your issue This is an O(n) time and O(sqrt(n)) space algorithm. In the second part of the post it will be extended to a linear time and O(n^(1/t)) space algorithm for an arbitrary positive integer t.
High-level idea: Split the list into sqrt(n) many (almost) equal-sized parts. Print the parts one after the other in reverse order using a naive linear-time, linear-space method, from the last to the first.
