1. Create a combo box
2. Make line edit object from combo box
3. Center align the line edit
4. Make the line edit on editable

Note : Because of the line edit object combo box will become editable therefore there is a need to make it non editable

import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 150, 30)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Saiyan", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # making it editable
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # getting the line edit of combo box
        line_edit = self.combo_box.lineEdit()
        # setting line edit alignment to the center
        # setting line edit to read only
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
