When it is required to accept a string that starts with a vowel, a ‘startswith’ function is used to check if the string begins with a specific character (vowel) or not.
Below is a demonstration of the same
my_list = ["Hi", "there", "how", "are", "u", "doing"] print("The list is : ") print(my_list) my_result =  vowel = "aeiou" for sub in my_list: flag = False for letter in vowel: if sub.startswith(letter): flag = True break if flag: my_result.append(sub) print("The resultant string is : ") print(my_result)
The list is : ["Hi", "there", "how", "are", "u", "doing"] The resultant string is : ['are', 'u']
A list is defined and is displayed on the console.
An empty list is defined.
The vowels are defined in a string.
The list is iterated over and a ‘flag’ variable is assigned to False.
The letters in the string are compared to the vowel string.
The ‘startswith’ method is used to check if a string in the list begins with a vowel.
If yes, it is displayed on the console.
