Why does the data type vary for assignment instead of checking directly?

Python shows different data type for seemingly similar inputs.

While assigning a value to a variable like this, I get a tuple:

>>> x = 1,
>>> type(x)
>>> <class 'tuple'>

However when I do the same thing in the following way, it shows a different data type:

>>> type(1,)
>>> <class 'int'>

How and why do these two differ from each other?

Hello @thrasys
When you put a comma after 1 you have created a tuple with one item only.
So x is a tuple in your example
For more info read: Create Tuple With One Item

The other: type(1,) I cannot explain.
Google and Youtube is useful.
