# Python – Maximum available value Dictionaries

Given list of dictionaries and a list, extract all the dictionaries which contain maximum available value of key from list.

Input : test_list [{“Gfg” : 6, “is” : 9, “best” : 10},
{“Gfg” : 8, “is” : 11, “best” : 19},
{“Gfg” : 2, “is” : 16, “best” : 10}], K = “best”, arg_list = [10, 7, 6, 12]
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 6, ‘is’: 9, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 2, ‘is’: 16, ‘best’: 10}]
Explanation : Maximum available value of “best” is 19, but not present in list, hence next max. is 10, all dictionaries corresponding are returned.

Input : test_list [{“Gfg” : 6, “is” : 9, “best” : 10},
{“Gfg” : 8, “is” : 11, “best” : 19}], K = “Gfg”, arg_list = [10, 7, 6, 12]
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 6, ‘is’: 9, ‘best’: 10}]
Explanation : Maximum value present in this case is 6, hence returned.

Method #1 : Using loop

This is brute way in which this problem can be solved. In this, first maximum value is obtained from dictionary values, which is also present in provided list. Post that all the dictionaries, which have that value are extracted.

Output

The original list : [{‘Gfg’: 6, ‘is’: 9, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 8, ‘is’: 11, ‘best’: 19}, {‘Gfg’: 2, ‘is’: 16, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 12, ‘is’: 1, ‘best’: 8}, {‘Gfg’: 22, ‘is’: 6, ‘best’: 8}]
The extracted dictionaries : [{‘Gfg’: 6, ‘is’: 9, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 2, ‘is’: 16, ‘best’: 10}]
