In the above given code it is also possible to form the array while taking the input from the user.
Also in the below code given for reference, you need not worry about the count as it is not used for indexing and only for incrementing each time a value is given until upper limit (here, 10)
You can refer to the below code for the same :
count = 0;
while count < 10
y = input('Input a number: ');
count = count + 1;
