Python – Check if list contain particular digits
• Last Updated : 02 Feb, 2021

Given a List and some digits, the task is to write a python program to check if the list contains only certain digits.

```Input : test_list = [435, 133, 113, 451, 134], digs = [1, 4, 5, 3]
Output : True
Explanation : All elements are made out of 1, 4, 5 or 3 only.

Input : test_list = [435, 133, 113, 451, 134], digs = [1, 4, 5]
Output : False
Explanation : 3 as a digit is required in allowed digits.```

Method #1 : Using loop + str() + join()

In this, we iterate for each element in the list and check for each element to have all the digits by joining all digits, converting to string and checking for each in all digit of elements converted to a string.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Test if list contain particular digits``# Using loop + str() + join()`` ` `# initializing lists``test_list ``=` `[``435``, ``133``, ``113``, ``451``, ``134``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# initializing digits``digs ``=` `[``1``, ``4``, ``5``, ``3``]`` ` `digt_str ``=` `''.join([``str``(ele) ``for` `ele ``in` `digs])``all_ele ``=` `''.join([``str``(ele) ``for` `ele ``in` `test_list])`` ` `res ``=` `True``for` `ele ``in` `all_ele:`` ` `    ``# checking for all digits in element string``    ``for` `el ``in` `ele:``        ``if` `el ``not` `in` `digt_str:``            ``res ``=` `False``            ``break`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Are all elements made from required digits? : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output:

```The original list is : [435, 133, 113, 451, 134]
Are all elements made from required digits? : True```

Method #2 : Using any() + list comprehension

In this, we flag off if any digit not from digit string using any() and not operation. One liner alternative extended using iteration in a list comprehension.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Test if list contain particular digits``# Using any() + list comprehension`` ` `# initializing lists``test_list ``=` `[``435``, ``133``, ``113``, ``451``, ``134``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# initializing digits``digs ``=` `[``1``, ``4``, ``5``, ``3``]`` ` `digt_str ``=` `''.join([``str``(ele) ``for` `ele ``in` `digs])``all_ele ``=` `''.join([``str``(ele) ``for` `ele ``in` `test_list])`` ` `# any() checks if any element is not part of digit``res ``=` `not` `any``(ele ``not` `in` `digt_str ``for` `ele ``in` `all_ele)`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Are all elements made from required digits? : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output:

```The original list is : [435, 133, 113, 451, 134]
Are all elements made from required digits? : True```
