@Rajni, following test case is somewhat similar to your problem. Try using this code snippet to resolve your issue:

public static WebDriver driver;
    public static String driverPath = ".\\chromedriver.exe";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Setting up Chrome driver path.
        System.setProperty("", driverPath);
        // Launching Chrome browser.
        driver = new ChromeDriver();


        List<WebElement> bakeries = driver.findElements(By.className("store-name"));


        for (WebElement webElement : bakeries) {
            String name = webElement.getText();

In the above code, I have a webpage with a list of bakeries in the area. Now for all the list elements, the class-name is same i.e. "store-name". So I have used a List to store all of these elements and then iterate through the list to print name of each item.

For further understanding, you can refer to the Selenium Certification.

Thanks, its working... can you please explain the below for loop condition. 

for (WebElement webElement : bakeries) 

This is an enhanced for loop (also called as for each loop)

Syntax: for( type var : collection)

So here you have a List (bakeries) and you are iterating through the list using a variable(webElement) of type WebElement.

Hope you are clear!

Thank you's working !
It's not working for me

code: ans=driver.find_elements_by_xpath('//span[@class="_1kMS"]')

i want to extract the text inside it

Hello @Meethi

What error you are getting? And please share your complete code so that I can help you out?

Text() Method of Selenium

  1. Open Firefox browser with the URL:
  2. Using text method of selenium web driver, find the web element with text – Write and Earn.
  3. Validate if the selected element is displayed on the web page.
  4. If it is displayed, print the text as Element found using text.

Try using List <WebElement> to access all similar elements :

List<WebElement> listElement = driver.findElements(By.className("human-readable"));
for(int i =0;i<listElement.size();i++) {
 String elementText = listElement.get(i).getText();
