Python - Access Set Items


Access Items

You cannot access items in a set by referring to an index or a key.

But you can loop through the set items using a for loop, or ask if a specified value is present in a set, by using the in keyword.


Loop through the set, and print the values:

thisset = {"apple", "banana", "cherry"}

for x in thisset:



Check if "banana" is present in the set:

thisset = {"apple", "banana", "cherry"}

print("banana" in thisset)

Change Items

Once a set is created, you cannot change its items, but you can add new items.
