What is the use of the "lt" and "gt" methods in Python?

The "lt" (less than) and "gt" (greater than) methods in Python are used to implement the comparison operations "<" and ">" respectively. These methods are used to define the ordering of instances of a class. They are part of the magic methods for object comparison and are called when the corresponding comparison operator is used. For example, if a class **A** has a defined "lt" method, then the expression **a1 < a2** will call the "lt" method of the **A** class and return the result.
