# Write a program in Python to check if a series contains duplicate elements or not

Input − Assume, you have the following series,

0    1
1    2
2    3
3    4
4    5

The above series contains no duplicate elements. Let’s verify using the following approaches.

## Solution 1

• Assume, you have a series with duplicate elements

0    1
1    2
2    3
3    4
4    5
5    3
• Set if condition to check the length of the series is equal to the unique array series length or not. It is defined below,

if(len(data)==len(np.unique(data))):
print("no duplicates")
else:
print("duplicates found")

### Example

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
data = pd.Series([1,2,3,4,5])
result = lambda x: "no duplicates" if(len(data)==len(np.unique(data))) else "duplicates found!"
print(result(data))

### Output

no duplicates

## Solution 2

### Example

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
data = pd.Series([1,2,3,4,5,3])
if(len(data)==len(np.unique(data))):
print("no duplicates")
else:
print("duplicates found")

### Output

duplicates found!
