# Python – Filter Tuples by Kth element from List

• Last Updated : 02 Sep, 2020

Given a list of tuples, filter by Kth element presence in List.

Input : test_list = [(“GFg”, 5, 9), (“is”, 4, 3), (“best”, 10, 29)], check_list = [4, 2, 3, 10], K = 2
Output : [(‘is’, 4, 3)]
Explanation : 3 is 2nd element and present in list, hence filtered tuple.

Input : test_list = [(“GFg”, 5, 9), (“is”, 4, 3), (“best”, 10, 29)], check_list = [4, 2, 3, 10], K = 1
Output : [(‘is’, 4, 3), (‘best’, 10, 29)]
Explanation : 4 and 10 are 1st elements and present in list, hence filtered tuples.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension

In this, we check for each element of Tuple’s Kth element to be present in list in shorthand using list comprehension and containment is tested using in operator.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Filter Tuples by Kth element from List ` `# Using list comprehension ` ` `  `# initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``"GFg"``, ``5``, ``9``), (``"is"``, ``4``, ``3``), (``"best"``, ``10``, ``29``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# initializing check_list ` `check_list ``=` `[``4``, ``2``, ``8``, ``10``] ` ` `  `# initializing K  ` `K ``=` `1` ` `  `# checking for presence on Kth element in list  ` `# one liner  ` `res ``=` `[sub ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list ``if` `sub[K] ``in` `check_list] ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The filtered tuples : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output

```The original list is : [('GFg', 5, 9), ('is', 4, 3), ('best', 10, 29)]
The filtered tuples : [('is', 4, 3), ('best', 10, 29)]
```

Method #2 : Using filter() + lambda

In this, lambda function checks for element presence and filter performs task of filtering tuples.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Filter Tuples by Kth element from List ` `# Using filter() + lambda ` ` `  `# initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``"GFg"``, ``5``, ``9``), (``"is"``, ``4``, ``3``), (``"best"``, ``10``, ``29``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# initializing check_list ` `check_list ``=` `[``4``, ``2``, ``8``, ``10``] ` ` `  `# initializing K  ` `K ``=` `1` ` `  `# filter() perform filter, lambda func. checks for presence ` `# one liner  ` `res ``=` `list``(``filter``(``lambda` `sub: sub[K] ``in` `check_list, test_list)) ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The filtered tuples : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output

```The original list is : [('GFg', 5, 9), ('is', 4, 3), ('best', 10, 29)]
The filtered tuples : [('is', 4, 3), ('best', 10, 29)]
