# Python: Find the elements of a given list of strings that contain specific substring using lambda

## Python Lambda: Exercise-39 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the elements of a given list of strings that contain specific substring using lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````def find_substring(str1, sub_str):
result = list(filter(lambda x: sub_str in x, str1))
return result
colors = ["red", "black", "white", "green", "orange"]
print("Original list:")
print(colors)

sub_str = "ack"
print("\nSubstring to search:")
print(sub_str)
print("Elements of the said list that contain specific substring:")
print(find_substring(colors, sub_str))
sub_str = "abc"
print("\nSubstring to search:")
print(sub_str)
print("Elements of the said list that contain specific substring:")
print(find_substring(colors, sub_str))
``````

Sample Output:

```Original list:
['red', 'black', 'white', 'green', 'orange']

Substring to search:
ack
Elements of the said list that contain specific substring:
['black']

Substring to search:
abc
Elements of the said list that contain specific substring:
[]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Returns all the elements of a list except the last one

Example:

```def tips_initial(lst):
return lst[0:-1]

print(tips_initial([1, 2, 3, 4]))
```

Output:
