# Python | Compare tuples

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we need to check if each element of one tuple is greater/smaller than it’s corresponding index in other tuple. This can have many possible applications. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using `all() + generator expression + zip()`
The combination of above functionalities can be used to perform this task. In this, we just compare all elements using `all()`. The cross tuple access is done by `zip()` and generator expression gives us the logic to compare.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Comparing tuples ` `# using generator expression + all() + zip() ` ` `  `# initialize tuples  ` `test_tup1 ``=` `(``10``, ``4``, ``5``) ` `test_tup2 ``=` `(``13``, ``5``, ``18``) ` ` `  `# printing original tuples  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 1 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup1)) ` `print``(``"The original tuple 2 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup2)) ` ` `  `# Comparing tuples ` `# using generator expression + all() + zip() ` `res ``=` `all``(x < y ``for` `x, y ``in` `zip``(test_tup1, test_tup2)) ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"Are all elements in second tuple greater than first ? : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 5)
The original tuple 2 : (13, 5, 18)
Are all elements in second tuple greater than first ? : True
```

Method #2 : Using `all() + map()` + lambda
The combination of above functionalities can be used to perform this particular task. In this, we perform extension of logic to each element using `map()` and logic generation by lambda function.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Comparing tuples ` `# using all() + lambda + map() ` ` `  `# initialize tuples  ` `test_tup1 ``=` `(``10``, ``4``, ``5``) ` `test_tup2 ``=` `(``13``, ``5``, ``18``) ` ` `  `# printing original tuples  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 1 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup1)) ` `print``(``"The original tuple 2 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup2)) ` ` `  `# Comparing tuples ` `# using all() + lambda + map() ` `res ``=` `all``(``map``(``lambda` `i, j: i < j, test_tup1, test_tup2)) ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"Are all elements in second tuple greater than first ? : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 5)
The original tuple 2 : (13, 5, 18)
Are all elements in second tuple greater than first ? : True
```
