# Python | Check if tuple and list are identical

Sometimes while working with different data in Python, we can have a problem of having data in different containers. In this situations, there can be need to test if data is identical cross containers. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using loop
This is the brute force method to perform this particular task. In this, we just iterate for list and tuple to test if at each index the elements are similar.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Check if tuple and list are identical ` `# Using loop ` ` `  `# Initializing list and tuple ` `test_list ``=` `[``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``] ` `test_tup ``=` `(``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``) ` ` `  `# printing original list and tuple  ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` `print``(``"The original tuple is : "` `+` `str``(test_tup)) ` ` `  `# Check if tuple and list are identical ` `# Using loop ` `res ``=` `True` `for` `i ``in` `range``(``0``, ``len``(test_list)): ` `    ``if``(test_list[i] !``=` `test_tup[i]): ` `        ``res ``=` `False` `        ``break` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"Are tuple and list identical ? : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : ['gfg', 'is', 'best']
The original tuple is : ('gfg', 'is', 'best')
Are tuple and list identical ? : True
```

Method #2 : Using `all() + zip()`
This task can also be performed in a single line using combination of above functions. In this, we just combine the container elements using `zip()`, and use `all()` to test for equality of elements at corresponding index.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Check if tuple and list are identical ` `# Using all() + zip() ` ` `  `# Initializing list and tuple ` `test_list ``=` `[``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``] ` `test_tup ``=` `(``'gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``) ` ` `  `# printing original list and tuple  ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` `print``(``"The original tuple is : "` `+` `str``(test_tup)) ` ` `  `# Check if tuple and list are identical ` `# Using all() + zip() ` `res ``=` `all``( [i ``=``=` `j ``for` `i, j ``in` `zip``(test_list, test_tup)] ) ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"Are tuple and list identical ? : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : ['gfg', 'is', 'best']
The original tuple is : ('gfg', 'is', 'best')
Are tuple and list identical ? : True
```
