Python: Move a specified element in a given list

Python List: Exercise - 196 with Solution

Write a Python program to move a specified element in a given list.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def group_similar_items(seq,el):
    seq.append(seq.pop(seq.index(el)))
    return seq 

colors = ['red','green','white','black','orange']
print("Original list:")
print(colors)
el = "white"
print("Move",el,"at the end of the said list:")
print(group_similar_items(colors, el))

colors = ['red','green','white','black','orange']
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(colors)
el = "red"
print("Move",el,"at the end of the said list:")
print(group_similar_items(colors, el))

colors = ['red','green','white','black','orange']
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(colors)
el = "black"
print("Move",el,"at the end of the said list:")
print(group_similar_items(colors, el))

Sample Output:

Original list:
['red', 'green', 'white', 'black', 'orange']
Move white at the end of the said list:
['red', 'green', 'black', 'orange', 'white']

Original list:
['red', 'green', 'white', 'black', 'orange']
Move red at the end of the said list:
['green', 'white', 'black', 'orange', 'red']

Original list:
['red', 'green', 'white', 'black', 'orange']
Move black at the end of the said list:
['red', 'green', 'white', 'orange', 'black']
