# Python â€“ Extract element from a list succeeded by K

When it is required to extract element from a list succeeded by ‘K’, a simple iteration and the ‘append’ method is used.

## Example

Below is a demonstration of the same

my_list = [45, 65, 32, 78, 99, 10, 21, 2]

print("The list is : ")
print(my_list)

K = 99
print("The value of K is ")
print(K)

my_result = []

for elem in range(len(my_list) - 1):
if my_list[elem + 1] == K:
my_result.append(my_list[elem])

print("The result is : " )
print(my_result)

## Output

The list is :
[45, 65, 32, 78, 99, 10, 21, 2]
The value of K is
99
The result is :
[78]

## Explanation

• A list is defined and is displayed on the console.

• The value for ‘K’ is defined and is displayed on the console.

• An empty list is defined.

• The list is iterated over and every element is checked to be equivalent to ‘K’.

• If so, it is appended to the empty list using the ‘append’ method.

• This list is displayed as the output on the console.
