Code that you are asked to explain
# Load libraries for web scraping
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import requests
# Get a soup from a URL

r = requests.get(url)
soup = BeautifulSoup(r.content, 'html.parser')
# Get all tags of a certain type from the soup
tags = soup.find_all('a', class_='item-teaser--heading-link')
# Collect info from the tags
collect_info = []
for tag in tags:
    # Get info from tag
    info = tag.get('href')

# Get a soup from multiple URLs
base_url = 'https://www.si.umich.edu/'
endings = collect_info
for ending in endings:
     url = base_url + ending
     r = requests.get(url)
     soup = BeautifulSoup(r.content, 'html.parser')
     # Get all tags of a certain type from the soup
     tags = soup.find_all('p')
     # Collect info from the tags
     collect_info = []
     for tag in tags:
         # Get info from tag
         info = tag.text
         collect_info.append(info)
         # Print the info
         print(collect_info)
