Python Error Challenge: List vs. Tuple Misuse

I am working on a Python script, and you encounter an error related to the misuse of lists and tuples. Here's a simplified version of your code:

[code]# Initializing a list

my_data = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]

# Attempting to change the second element to 99

my_data[1] = 99

# Creating a tuple

my_tuple = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

# Attempting to append a new element to the tuple



When I execute this code, I get an error. I've read multiple blogs about lists and tuples but have been unable to find the programming issue; it would be great if someone could give a solution for this.

Explain the problem's nature and the differences in how lists and tuples handle updates. Clarify when lists are appropriate and when tuples are preferable. Thank you very much.
