    How can we do this by getting the list values from user input and searching for a number from the list which the user entered and displaying it

    Hey aasif u can use a for loop to get the inputs
    Items=[]
    a=int(input(‘enter no of elements’)
    for i in range(0,a):
    c=int(input(‘enter the elements’))
    items.append(c)
