Method #1 : Using regex + findall() + list comprehension
In this, we create a regex of unicodes and check for occurrence in String List, extract each String without unicode using findall().
Method #2 : Using regex + search() + filter() + lambda
In this, we search for only English alphabets in String, and extract only those that have those. We use filter() + lambda to perform the task of passing filter functionality and iteration.
