Could somebody please point out where my ValueError syntax is wrong? Thank you!

def GeneratingList(n,k):
        l = [] 
        while (n <=k):
            for i in range(n):
            if (len(set(l)) == len(l)):
                return l
                l = []
        assert false

    except ValueError:
        print("value error, enter valid input n >= k")

In the line v.append(...), I think you should replace v by l.

You don't need try: ... except: ... in this code. Simply replace assert false with your print(...) statement.

In general never use l for a variable, well one letter variables are in general not really welcome, but this "ell" is even worse, it looks like a one... You may also better try something like

my_list = [QQ(randint(1, k)) for _ in range(n)]

and then arrange somehow that the list has different elements, if this is needed...

I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to accomplish, but perhaps changing ValueError to AssertionError will fix the problem.
