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]]
