## Examples of count() method in Python

### Example 1: How Tuple count() work sin Pytho?

``````
# vowels tuple
alphabets = ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'a', 'b')

# count element 'a'
count = alphabets .count('a')

# print count
print('The count of a is:', count)

# count element 'c'
count = alphabets .count('c')

# print count
print('The count of c is:', count)
```
```

Output:

```
The count of a is: 2
The count of c is: 1
```

### Example 2:How to count list and tuple elements inside Tuple?

``````
# random tuple
random_tup = ('a', ('b', 'c'), ('b', 'c'), [1, 2])

# count element ('b', 'c')
count = random_tup.count(('b', 'c'))

# print count
print("The count of ('b', 'c') is:", count)

# count element [1, 2]
count = random_tup.count([1, 2])

# print count
print("The count of [1, 2] is:", count)
```
```

Output:

```
The count of ('b', 'c') is: 2
The count of [1, 2] is: 1
```
