I am trying to set the xlabel of a subplot to some value. But the code returns an error: "AttributeError: 'AxesSubplot' object has no attribute 'xlabel'"

Here is the code:

fig, axs = plt.subplots(len(cols), len(cols), figsize=(12, 12))

axs[i, j].scatter(x, y, c=colors)

axs[i, j].xlabel(cols[i])

The line that gives the error has been highlighted. How can I fix it?

It is clear from the error the subplot does not have the 'xlabel' attribute. You need to use 'set_xlabel()' instead. 

Make the following change in your code, and it should fix the error.

fig, axs = plt.subplots(len(cols), len(cols), figsize=(12, 12))

axs[i, j].scatter(x, y, c=colors)

axs[i, j].set_xlabel(cols[i])
