Python in Keyword

The in keyword in Python is used when we need either:

  1. to check whether a particular value is available in a sequence such as list, tuple etc. or not
  2. or to traverse a sequence in for loop

For example:

x = [12, 23, 65, 87]
if 23 in x:
    print("23 is available in the list 'x'")
    print("23 is not available in the list 'x'")

print("\nAll elements of list 'x':")
for e in x:

The snapshot given below shows the sample output produced by above program, demonstrating the in keyword in Python:

Note - Python is a case-sensitive language, therefore keep both the letter of in in small letter.

    print("\nThe number is not available")

print("\nEnter a String: ", end="")
str = input()
print("\nCharacters of given string are:")
