Like most other programming languages, Python has the concept of closures. Extending these closures gives us decorators, which are an invaluable asset. You can learn about decorators in 12 easy steps here.
To solve the above question, make a list of the mobile numbers and pass it to a function that sorts the array in ascending order. Make a decorator that standardizes the mobile numbers and apply it to the function.

Solution in Python

def wrapper(f):
    def fun(l):
        f("+91 "+i[-10:-5]+" "+i[-5:] for i in l)
    return fun

def sort_phone(l):
    print(*sorted(l), sep='\n')

if __name__ == '__main__':
    l = [input() for _ in range(int(input()))]
