# Python: Find the items start with specific character from a given list

## Python List: Exercise - 70 with Solution

Write a Python program to find items starting with a specific character from a list.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````def test(lst, char):
result = [i for i in lst if i.startswith(char)]
return result
text = ["abcd", "abc", "bcd", "bkie", "cder", "cdsw", "sdfsd", "dagfa", "acjd"]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(text)
char = "a"
print(test(text, char))
char = "d"
print(test(text, char))
char = "w"
print(test(text, char))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
['abcd', 'abc', 'bcd', 'bkie', 'cder', 'cdsw', 'sdfsd', 'dagfa', 'acjd']

['abcd', 'abc', 'acjd']

['dagfa']

[]

## Python: Tips of the Day

Given a predicate function, fn, and a prop string, this curried function will then take an object to inspect by calling the property and passing it to the predicate:

Example:

```def tips_check_prop(fn, prop):
return lambda obj: fn(obj[prop])
check_age = tips_check_prop(lambda x: x >= 25, 'age')
user = {'name': 'Owen', 'age': 25}

print(check_age(user))
```

Output:

```True
```
