hi its not code its text file that i need to slipt using python code..

So it seems that "QUESTION DEFINITIONS
var P1_1 = new Array...
level and therefore would not include specific audit objectives or procedures.", 4, 1);" is a string that does indeed look like a javascript array assignment. Let's say you've read that string into a python variable, strA. First, let's get rid of the stuff outside the parentheses:
strA=strA.split("(")[1].split(")")[0]
Now let's replace the commas with linefeeds:
strA=strA.replace(",","\n")
Now I think you have what you want, no?

, is in a file called "text.txt" (it could be anything).
Run this code:

fid=open("text.txt","r")
strA=fid.read()
fid.close()
strA=strA.split("(")[1].split(")")[0]
strA=strA.replace(",","\n")
print strA

What do you get?
