The built-in "len()" method in Python may be used to determine the length of a list. The function takes a single argument, which is the list you want to find the length of, and returns an integer value representing the number of items in the list. You can also use this on any iterable item like a string, tuple, etc.  

To determine how many elements are included in an object, use Python's len() method. The object can be a list, tuple, string, set, dictionary, or any other built-in or user-defined iterable object. The function returns an integer value representing the number of items in the object.   

It is a built-in function in python that can be applied to different types of objects, like strings, lists, tuples, etc. It may also be used to determine the quantity of keys in a dictionary, characters in a string, items in an array, etc.  

You may have a look at the code given below for finding the length of an item using list in Python.
