# Python Program to Extract Elements from a List in a Set

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to extract elements from a List in a Set, a simple ‘for’ loop and a base condition can be used.

## Example

Below is a demonstration of the same

my_list = [5, 7, 2, 7, 2, 4, 9, 8, 8]

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

search_set = {6, 2, 8}

my_result = []
for element in my_list:

if element in search_set:
my_result.append(element)

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

## Output

The list is :
[5, 7, 2, 7, 2, 4, 9, 8, 8]
The result is :
[2, 2, 8, 8]

## Explanation

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

• Another set with specific elements is defined.

• An empty list is defined.

• The list is iterated over, and element is searched for in the ‘set’.

• If it is found, it is added to the empty list.

• This is the result that is displayed on the console.
