- Return False if any such value is found, True otherwise.
def is_contained_in(l1, l2): for x in set(l1): if l1.count(x) > l2.count(x): return False return True print(is_contained_in([1, 2], [2, 4, 1])) print(is_contained_in(, [2, 4, 1])) print(is_contained_in([1, 1], [4, 2, 1])) print(is_contained_in([1, 1], [3, 2, 4, 1, 5, 1]))
True True False True
