Non-unique Elements Non-unique Elements
We have prepared a set of Editor's Choice Solutions. You will see them first after you solve the mission. In order to see all other solutions you should change the filter.

If you have 50 different plug types, appliances wouldn't be available and would be very expensive. But once an electric outlet becomes standardized, many companies can design appliances, and competition ensues, creating variety and better prices for consumers.

You are given a non-empty list of integers (X). For this task, you should return a list consisting of only the non-unique elements in this list. To do so you will need to remove all unique elements (elements which are contained in a given list only once). When solving this task, do not change the order of the list. Example: [1, 2, 3, 1, 3] 1 and 3 non-unique elements and result will be [1, 3, 1, 3].


Input: A list of integers.

Output: An iterable of integers.


assert checkio([1, 2, 3, 1, 3]) == [1, 3, 1, 3]
assert checkio([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]) == []
assert checkio([5, 5, 5, 5, 5]) == [5, 5, 5, 5, 5]
assert checkio([10, 9, 10, 10, 9, 8]) == [10, 9, 10, 10, 9]

How it is used: This mission will help you to understand how to manipulate arrays, something that is the basis for solving more complex tasks. The concept can be easily generalized for real world tasks. For example: if you need to clarify statistics by removing low frequency elements (noise).

You can find out more about Python arrays in one of our articles featuring lists, tuples, array.array and numpy.array .

CheckiO Extensions

CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.

In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)

Install CheckiO Client first:

pip3 install checkio_client

Configure your tool

checkio --domain=py config --key=

Sync solutions into your local folder

checkio sync

(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)

checkio serv -d

Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon

checkio install-plugin
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium

Read more here about other functionality that the checkio client provides. Feel free to submit an issue in case of any difficulties.
