Sorry for a certainly too long code but the problem is in the while the loop

def All_pref(cand=["A","B","C","D"],code=1) :
    ncand=len(cand)
    Scand=sorted(Set(cand))
    all_pref=Arrangements(Scand,ncand).list()
    all_pref1=[str(Word(x)) for x in all_pref]
    if code==1 :
        return ncand
    if code==2 :
        return all_pref1

cand=["A","B","C","D"]    
Ap=All_pref(cand,2)
ne=[18,16,14,12,11,20,19,14,16,12,2,1,0,0,20,16,13,15,11,10,9,8,7,5]
alf=[list(build_alphabet(x)) for x in Ap]
show(alf)
resultats={}
alfc={}
iteration=0
while len(alf[0])>0:
    show(alf)
    resultats[iteration]={}
    premier_par_pref =[[ne[i] if alf[i].index(x)==0 else 0 for i in range(len(alf))] for x in cand]
    nb_fois_premier_par_pref = [add(x) for x in premier_par_pref]
    show(nb_fois_premier_par_pref)
    min_nb_fois_premier_par_pref = min(nb_fois_premier_par_pref)
    index_min_nb_fois_premier_par_pref = nb_fois_premier_par_pref.index(min_nb_fois_premier_par_pref)
    cand_el=cand[index_min_nb_fois_premier_par_pref]
    show(cand_el)
    resultats[iteration]["elimine"]=cand_el
    alfc[iteration]=alf.copy()
    show(alfc[iteration])        
    resultats[iteration]["liste"]=alfc[iteration]
    [x.remove(cand_el) for x in alf]
    cand.remove(cand_el)
    iteration+=1
show(resultats)

if you look at the final result it is empty. Where do I fail ?

Replace

alfc[iteration]=alf.copy()

with

alfc[iteration] = deepcopy(alf)

(This should work if you're using it in an interactive Sage session, but deepcopy may not be defined in a non interactive session, so you might need to also include from copy import deepcopy.)

See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2..., for example.

Thanks John. I have done a lot of research on copy() but never deepcopy() never comes. Is there a place where one can find key words for Sagemath ?

This is a Python issue, not a Sage one in particular. If you had replaced show(alfc[iteration]) with show(alfc), you would have seen alfc changing whenever alf did, and that would have perhaps led you to questions about how to copy nested lists, which is the issue here. (And it is a common source of confusion with Python.)
