The built-in Python function all() checks if all items in a sequence (such as a list, tuple, or set) are True.
It takes one input iterable.
If all items in iterable evaluate to True, all(iterable) returns True.
Otherwise, if at least one item evaluates to False, it returns False.
Python any() function takes a sequence as input (such as a tuple or list) and checks if at least one item is True.
If at least one item in the input iterable is True, any() returns True.
If all items evaluate to False, it returns False.
If the input iterable [more...]
