This is a typical pre forward hook function.

```
def pre_forward_hook_function(self, input):
# Input would be tuple of size 1. To obtain the tensor
x = input[0]
# perform computations (simple addition/multiplication) on x and return it
return x
```

The preforward hook has the input in the form a tuple, which is immutable.

So to change the input, a new variable is assigned. ` x = input[0]`

Note that here, the input I am refering to is the input that is accessed within the pre forward hook function.

The problem is will this assignment on x result in breaking of the computation graph for the input(input to the network, not the input to the pre hook function) ? I have this doubt since the input of the pre hook function is a tuple and x is torch.tensor type, two different data types.
