Python's any(~) method returns a boolean indicating whether any element of the provided iterable is true.

Parameters

1. iterable | iterable

The iterable to check for true elements.

Return value

A boolean indicating whether any element of the provided iterable is true. If the iterable is empty or all elements in the iterable are false, False is returned.

Examples

Basic usage

To check whether any element in list a is true:

a = ['hi', 'bye', 'see you']
any(a)
True

As all elements in list a are true, True is returned.

To check whether any element in list b is true:

b = [0, False]
any(b)
False

All elements in list b are false hence False is returned.
