[Solved] Given two strings s and t, return true if s is a subsequence of t, or false otherwise. A subsequence of a string is a new string that is formed from the original string by deleting some (can be none) of the characters without disturbing the relative positions of the remaining characters. (i.e., “ace” is a subsequence of “abcde” while “aec” is not).

Question

Given two strings s and t, return true if s is a subsequence of t, or false otherwise.

subsequence of a string is a new string that is formed from the original string by deleting some (can be none) of the characters without disturbing the relative positions of the remaining characters. (i.e., "ace" is a subsequence of "abcde" while "aec" is not).

Example 1:

Input: s = "abc", t = "ahbgdc"
Output: true

Example 2:

Input: s = "axc", t = "ahbgdc"
Output: false

Constraints:

  • 0 <= s.length <= 100
  • 0 <= t.length <= 104
  • s and t consist only of lowercase English letters.

Follow up: Suppose there are lots of incoming s, say s1, s2, ..., sk where k >= 109, and you want to check one by one to see if t has its subsequence. In this scenario, how would you change your code?

Python Solution

class Solution:
    def isSubsequence(self, s: str, t: str) -> bool:
        for i in s:
            x = t.find(i)
            if x==-1:
                return(False)
            else:
                t=t[x+1:]

        return (True)
