# Python | Count true booleans in a list

Given a list of booleans, write a Python program to find the count of true booleans in the given list.

Examples:

```Input : [True, False, True, True, False]
Output : 3

Input : [False, True, False, True]
Output : 2
```

Method #1 : Using List comprehension

One simple method to count True booleans in a list is using list comprehension.

 `# Python3 program to count True booleans in a list ` ` `  `def` `count(lst): ` ` `  `    ``return` `sum``(``bool``(x) ``for` `x ``in` `lst) ` `     `  `# Driver code ` `lst ``=` `[``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``True``, ``False``] ` `print``(count(lst)) `

Output:

```3
```

Method #2 : Using `sum()`

 `# Python3 program to count True booleans in a list ` ` `  `def` `count(lst): ` `     `  `    ``return` `sum``(lst) ` `     `  `# Driver code ` `lst ``=` `[``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``True``, ``False``] ` `print``(count(lst)) `

Output:

```3
```

A more robust and transparent method to use sum is given below.

 `def` `count(lst): ` `     `  `    ``return` `sum``(``1` `for` `x ``in` `lst ``if` `x)`

Method #3 : `count()` method

 `# Python3 program to count True booleans in a list ` ` `  `def` `count(lst): ` `     `  `    ``return` `lst.count(``True``) ` `     `  `# Driver code ` `lst ``=` `[``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``True``, ``False``] ` `print``(count(lst)) `

Output:

```3
```

Method #4 : `filter()`

 `# Python3 program to count True booleans in a list ` ` `  `def` `count(lst): ` `     `  `    ``return` `len``(``list``(``filter``(``None``, lst))) ` `     `  `# Driver code ` `lst ``=` `[``True``, ``False``, ``True``, ``True``, ``False``] ` `print``(count(lst)) `

Output:

```3
```
