# Find parity outliers

Isabelle Viktoria Maciohsek · Python, List, Math · Nov 2, 2020

Finds the items that are parity outliers in a given list.

• Use `collections.Counter` with a list comprehension to count even and odd values in the list.
• Use `collections.Counter.most_common()` to get the most common parity.
• Use a list comprehension to find all elements that do not match the most common parity.
```from collections import Counter

def find_parity_outliers(nums):
return [
x for x in nums
if x % 2 != Counter([n % 2 for n in nums]).most_common()[0][0]
]```
`find_parity_outliers([1, 2, 3, 4, 6]) # [1, 3]`
