Python: Split values into two groups, based on the result of the given filtering function
Python List: Exercise - 217 with Solution
Write a Python program to split values into two groups, based on the result of the given filtering function.
- Use a list comprehension to add elements to groups, based on the value returned by fn for each element.
- If fn returns a truthy value for any element, add it to the first group, otherwise add it to the second group
def bifurcate_by(lst, fn): return [ [x for x in lst if fn(x)], [x for x in lst if not fn(x)] ] print(bifurcate_by(['red', 'green', 'black', 'white'], lambda x: x == 'w'))
[['white'], ['red', 'green', 'black']]
