Python Program to accept string starting with vowel

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

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.

Example

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)

Output

The list is :
["Hi", "there", "how", "are", "u", "doing"]
The resultant string is :
['are', 'u']

Explanation

  • 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.
