Python program to find the character position of Kth word from a list of strings

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to find the character position of ‘K’th word from a list of strings, a list comprehension along with enumerate is used.

Example

Below is a demonstration of the same −

my_list = ["python", "is", "fun", "to", "learn"]

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

K = 15
print("The value of K is :")
print(K)

my_result = [element[0] for sub in enumerate(my_list) for element in enumerate(sub[1])]

my_result = my_result[K]

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

Output

The list is :
['python', 'is', 'fun', 'to', 'learn']
The value of K is :
15
The result is :
2

Explanation

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

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

  • A list comprehension is used to iterate over the elements of the list using enumerate.

  • The zeroth element in every element is accessed using enumerate

  • This is converted to a list.

  • Since enumerate is used, the output would be an integer here.

  • The ‘K’th element of this list is displayed as the output on the console.
