# Function to find intersection of two arrays
  
def interSection(arr1,arr2):
  
     # filter(lambda x: x in arr1, arr2)  -->
     # filter element x from list arr2 where x
     # also lies in arr1
     result = list(filter(lambda x: x in arr1, arr2)) 
     print ("Intersection : ",result)
  
# Driver program
if __name__ == "__main__":
    arr1 = [1, 3, 4, 5, 7]
    arr2 = [2, 3, 5, 6]
    interSection(arr1,arr2)
