Selenium Select - Selecting dropdown option by part of the text

Selenium Select have 3 methos of option selection:
1) selectByIndex
2) selectByValue
3) selectByVisibleText

How would you implement it effectively?


You can try a logic like this hope this helps

    List <WebElements> optionsInnerText= driver.findElements(By.tagName("option"));

     for(WebElement text: optionsInnerText){

    String textContent = text.getAttribute("textContent");
