Python – Extract Even elements in Nested Mixed Tuple

Sometimes, while working with Python tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to get all the even elements from tuple. The tuples can be nested or mixed. This kind of problem can occur in data domains. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_tuple = (5, (7, 6, (2, (4, ))))
Output : ((6, (2, (4, ))), )

Input : test_tuple = (5, (8, 6, (2, (4, 8))))
Output : ((8, 6, (2, (4, 8))), )

Method #1 : Using recursion + isinstance() + loop
This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. In this, we perform task of getting the element instance to be integer using isinstance() and function is recursed once tuple is encountered.

def even_ele(test_tuple, even_fnc):
    res = tuple()
    for ele in test_tuple:
        if isinstance(ele, tuple):
            res += (even_ele(ele, even_fnc), )
        elif even_fnc(ele):
            res += (ele, )
    return res
  
# initializing tuples
test_tuple = (4, 5, (7, 6, (2, 4)), 6, 8)
  
# printing original tuple
print("The original tuple : " + str(test_tuple))
  
# Extract Even elements in Nested Mixed Tuple
# Using recursion + isinstance() + loop
res = even_ele(test_tuple, lambda x: x % 2 == 0)
  
# printing result 
print("Even elements of tuple : " + str(res))

Output :



The original tuple : (4, 5, (7, 6, (2, 4)), 6, 8)
Even elements of tuple : (4, (6, (2, 4)), 6, 8)

 

Method #2 : Using recursion + isinstance() + generator expresssion
This method perform this task in similar manner as above method. The different is just that it is shorthand to above method, does the job in one line using generator expression.
