Let’s see a basic linear search operation on Python list and tuples.
A simple approach is to do linear search, i.e
- Start from the leftmost element of list and one by one compare x with each element of the list.
- If x matches with an element, return True.
- If x doesn’t match with any of elements, return False.

Note that list are mutable but tuples are not.
