# 8.Anti_vowel

#1

Hi, Can anyone tell me how do I club the elements in the list.
I used join but didn't work out.

#2

please post raw code , thanks!

#3

def anti_vowel(text):
j=[]

``````for i in text:
print (i)
j+=i

print ''.join(j)

for y in j:
if y=='u':
j.remove('u')

elif y=='a':
j.remove('a')

elif y=='e':
j.remove('e')

elif y=='i':
j.remove('i')

elif y=='o':
j.remove('o')

elif y=='A':
j.remove('A')

elif y=='E':
j.remove('E')

elif y=='I':
j.remove('I')

elif y=='O':
j.remove('O')

elif y=='U':
j.remove('U')

return j``````

Your code have many repeated parts tho and it can be made more efficient, not considering that at the moment , with respect to your code,

You need to use `join()` method on your list j so it able to returned as a string.

we can reduce this line by...

`````` if y=='u':
j.remove('u')

elif y=='a':
j.remove('a')

elif y=='e':
j.remove('e')

elif y=='i':
j.remove('i')

elif y=='o':
j.remove('o')

elif y=='A':
j.remove('A')

elif y=='E':
j.remove('E')

elif y=='I':
j.remove('I')

elif y=='O':
j.remove('O')

elif y=='U':
j.remove('U')``````

by this..

``````if y in "aeiouAEIOU":
#code``````

Thanks but still I am getting the same error. I used join but I think after j+=(i)...I had to do something as it's taking the single character of 'text' as an element of the list 'j'. Hence, the error.
Can you help me in that particular problem ?

#6

Can you show me the updated code ? use 3 ticks format the code (surround code with it) or can use `<\>` after selecting the code.

#7

def anti_vowel(text):
j=[]
text='anshul'
for i in text:
print (i)
j+=i
print ''.join(i)
for y in j:
if y in "aeiouAEIOU":
j.remove(y)
return j
I didn't what 3 ticks mean here...you mean """....srry I am a newbie in coding.

#8

You have to convert your list to string at this line instead of doing it before. use `join()` method,right now you directly returning the list.

#9

def anti_vowel(text):
j=[]

``````for i in text:
print (i)
j+=i

for y in j:
if y in "aeiouAEIOU":
j.remove(y)

text=''.join(j)
return text``````

Works well!
Thanls @greentreemee
