# Python – Dual element Rows Combinations

• Last Updated : 01 Mar, 2020

Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we need to find combinations in list. This can be a simple. But sometimes, we need to perform a variation of it and have a dual element row instead of a single element. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + `enumerate()`
The combination of above functions can be used to perform this task. In this, we iterate through the list and perform the combinations using comprehension and enumerate().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate ``# Dual element Rows Combinations``# using list comprehension + enumerate()``from` `collections ``import` `defaultdict`` ` `# Initializing list``test_list ``=` `[[``3``, ``4``], [``5``, ``6``], [``7``, ``8``]]`` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Dual element Rows Combinations``# using list comprehension + enumerate()``res ``=` `[test_list[idx ``-` `len``(test_list)] ``+` `test_list[idx ``+` `1` `-` `len``(test_list)] ``      ``for` `idx, ele ``in` `enumerate``(test_list)]`` ` `# printing result ``print` `(``"Combination of dual rows list is : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original list is : [[3, 4], [5, 6], [7, 8]]
Combination of dual rows list is : [[3, 4, 5, 6], [5, 6, 7, 8], [7, 8, 3, 4]]
```

Method #2 : Using` map() + lambda + combinations()`
The combinations of above functions can be used to perform this task. In this, the task of iteration and pairing is done by map() and combinations() respectively.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate ``# Dual element Rows Combinations``# using map() + lambda + combinations()``from` `itertools ``import` `combinations`` ` `# Initializing list``test_list ``=` `[[``3``, ``4``], [``5``, ``6``], [``7``, ``8``]]`` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Dual element Rows Combinations``# using map() + lambda + combinations()``res ``=` `list``(``map``(``lambda` `ele: ele[``0``] ``+` `ele[``1``], combinations(test_list, ``2``)))`` ` `# printing result ``print` `(``"Combination of dual rows list is : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original list is : [[3, 4], [5, 6], [7, 8]]
Combination of dual rows list is : [[3, 4, 5, 6], [5, 6, 7, 8], [7, 8, 3, 4]]
```
