In the above XMl file if at least one Article element is available
then the Object Should be counted.

Similarly how to count if the file has large lines.
But the structure should be the above on.

How to do this

Best way would be using linQ, something like

C#
var count = XDocument
    .Load("test.xml")
    .XPathSelectElements("//Element")
    .Count();


and to look for particular child see below.


C#
IEnumerable<XElement> elements =
    from el in root.Elements("Element")
    where (string)el.Element("Article") <> ""
    select el;
