Appologise for late response!

I mean identifying at which location does A, B or C occurs! 
For example, element 4 has value A, it will give the results as

A is found at element 4.

A, B or C will never appear altogether.

Most important is to find the position where A, B or C value exist and
get its value which will be either A, B or C!

Correct. That's what you appeared to be asking for.

> But it does not return the position it finds A, B or C

Do you mean identifying which of several locations
contains the value first found?

Or do you mean the character position within the
elemen't content?

What happens if several location elements contain
an A, a B, or a C?

Which is more important (if at all): the order or
hierarchical position of the matched element[s],
or some impicit rank in the values A, B, or C?
