I want to compare 2 iterables and print the items which appear in both iterables.

>>> a = ('q', 'r') 

>>> b = ('q') 

# Iterate over a. If y not in b, print y. 

# I want to see ['r'] printed. 

>>> print([ y if y not in b for y in a]) 


But it gives me an invalid syntax error where the ^ has been placed. What is wrong about this lambda function?

The code that you have written is in wrong order wrong. The if should be after the for (unless it is in an if-else ternary operator)

[y for y in a if y not in b]
