# Get Sublist from List based on condition in Python

This tutorial will discuss about unique ways to get a sublist from a list based on certain conditions in Python.

## Method 1: Using filter() method

Create a lambda function, that accepts a element as argument, and returns True if that element satisfies a given condition, otherwise returns False.

Pass this lambda function to filter() method along with a list. It will return only those elements from list for which this lambda function returns True. Collect those elements in a new list i.e. a new list containing only those elements from list, that satisfies the given condition.

### Example 1: Get a sublist containing only odd numbers from list.

Let’s see the complete example,

```listOfIntegers = [12, 42, 78, 68, 91, 72, 71, 81, 82]

# Get a sublist of only odd numbers from list
subList = list(filter(lambda elem: elem % 2 == 1, listOfIntegers))

print(subList)
```

Output

```[91, 71, 81]

```

### Example 2: Get a sublist containing numbers between 70 to 80 from the list.

Let’s see the complete example,

```listOfIntegers = [12, 42, 78, 68, 91, 72, 71, 81, 82]

# Get a sublist of only numbers between 70 to 80
subList = list(filter(lambda elem: elem > 70 and elem < 80, listOfIntegers))

print (subList)
```

Output

```[78, 72, 71]

```

## Method 2: Using List Comprehension

Use list comprehension to apply a condition on each element of list, and select only those elements for which the condition evaluates to `True`.

### Example 1: Get a sublist containing only odd numbers from list.

Let’s see the complete example,

```listOfIntegers = [12, 42, 78, 68, 91, 72, 71, 81, 82]

# Get a sublist of only odd numbers from list
subList = [elem for elem in listOfIntegers if elem % 2 == 1]

print (subList)
```

Output

```[91, 71, 81]

```

### Example 2: Get a sublist containing numbers between 70 to 80 from the list.

Let’s see the complete example,

```listOfIntegers = [12, 42, 78, 68, 91, 72, 71, 81, 82]

# Get a sublist of only numbers between 70 to 80
subList = [elem for elem in listOfIntegers if elem > 70 and elem < 80]

print (subList)
```

Output

```[78, 72, 71]

```
