We are given list of n number of arrays, find all common elements in given arrays ?
Input : arr = [[1,2,3,4], [8,7,3,2], [9,2,6,3], [5,1,2,3]] Output : Common Elements = [2,3]
We can solve this problem quickly in python using intersection_update() method of Set() data structure.
How intersection_update() works ?
Suppose we have two sets A and B, then A.intersection_update(B) operation updates set A with common elements in set A and B. For example, A=set([1,2,3]) and B=set([4,2,3]) now after taking A.intersection_update(B), value of set A will be [2,3]. Syntax is anySet.intersection_update(iterable).
Common Elements = [2,3]
