Sometimes, while working with Python list, we can have a problem in which we have a Boolean list and we need to find Boolean AND or OR of all elements in it. This kind of problem has application in Data Science domain. Let’s discuss an easy way to solve both these tasks.

Method #1 : AND operation – Using `all()`
The solution to this problem is quite straight forward, but application awareness is required. The all() performs the Boolean AND of the list and returns the result.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Boolean List AND and OR operations``# AND Operation - Using all()`` ` `# initialize list``test_list ``=` `[``True``, ``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``False``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Boolean List AND and OR operations``# AND Operation - Using all()``res ``=` `all``(test_list)`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Result after performing AND among elements : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original list is : [True, True, False, True, False]
Result after performing AND among elements : False
```

Method #2 : OR operation – Using `any()`
This task can be performed using `any()`. This checks for any True element in list and returns True in that case else returns a False.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Boolean List AND and OR operations``# OR operation - Using any()`` ` `# initialize list``test_list ``=` `[``True``, ``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``False``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Boolean List AND and OR operations``# OR operation - Using any()``res ``=` `any``(test_list)`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Result after performing OR among elements : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original list is : [True, True, False, True, False]
Result after performing OR among elements : True
```
