  1. Make a system call with ‘clear’ in Linux and ‘cls’ in Windows as an argument.
  2. Store the returned value is an underscore or whatever variable you want (an underscore is used because python shell always stores its last output in an underscore).

# import only system from os

from os import system, name

# import sleep to show output for some time period

from time import sleep

# define our clear function

def clear():

# for windows

if name == 'nt':

 _ = system('cls')

# for mac and linux(here, os.name14 is 'posix')

else:

 _ = system('clear')

# print out some text

print('hello geeks\n'*10)

# sleep for 2 seconds after printing output

sleep(2)

# now call function we defined above

clear()
