Given a list of tuples, the task is to find all those tuples containing the given element, say n.
Examples: 

Input: n = 11, list = [(11, 22), (33, 55), (55, 77), (11, 44)] 
Output: [(11, 22), (11, 44)]
Input: n = 3, list = [(14, 3),(23, 41),(33, 62),(1, 3),(3, 3)] 
Output: [(14, 3), (1, 3), (3, 3)]

There are multiple ways we can find the tuples containing the given element from a list of tuples. Let’s see some of Pythonic ways to do this task. 
Method #1: Using list comprehension. It works only when there are fixed number of elements in every list. For example 2 elements in below code.

Python3




# Python code to find the tuples containing
# the given element from a list of tuples
 
# List of tuples
Input = [(14, 3),(23, 41),(33, 62),(1, 3),(3, 3)]
 
# Find an element in list of tuples.
Output = [item for item in Input
          if item[0] == 3 or item[1] == 3]
 
# printing output
print(Output)

Output: 

[(14, 3), (1, 3), (3, 3)]

 

  
Method #2 : Using filter In this solution, there can be variable number of nodes in lists.

Python3




# Python code to find the tuples containing
# the given element from a list of tuples
 
# List of tuples
Input = [(11, 22), (33, 55), (55, 77),
         (11, 44), (33, 22, 100, 11), (99, 11)]
 
# Using filter
Output = list(filter(lambda x:11 in x, Input))
 
# Printing output
print(Output)

Output: 

[(11, 22), (11, 44), (33, 22, 100, 11), (99, 11)]
