Given Matrix, extract rows with complex data types. 

Examples:

Input : test_list = [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]] 
Output : [[1, [3, 4], 9], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]] 
Explanation : Rows have lists and tuples respectively.
 

Input : test_list = [[4, 2, [5]], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]] 
Output : [[4, 2, [5]], [1, [3, 4], 9], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]] 
Explanation : Rows have lists and tuples respectively. 

Method #1: Using list comprehension + isinstance() + any()

In this, we check for each element of row to be of dictionary, tuple, set or list datatype using isinstance(), if any element is found to have that instance, the row is added in result.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Extract rows with Complex data types
# Using list comprehension + isinstance() + any()
 
# initializing list
test_list = [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
 
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
 
# checking for any of list, set, tuple or
# dictionary as complex structures
res = [row for row in test_list if any(isinstance(ele, list) or isinstance(ele, tuple)
                                       or isinstance(ele, dict) or isinstance(ele, set) for ele in row)]
 
# printing result
print("Filtered Rows : " + str(res))

Output

The original list is : [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
Filtered Rows : [[1, [3, 4], 9], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]

Method #2 : Using filter() + lambda + isinstance()

In this, we perform task of filtering using filter and lambda, checking for data type is done using isinstance().

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Extract rows with Complex data types
# Using filter() + lambda + isinstance()
 
# initializing list
test_list = [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
 
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
 
# checking for any of list, set, tuple or dictionary as complex structures
res = list(filter(lambda row: any(isinstance(ele, list) or isinstance(ele, tuple)
                                  or isinstance(ele, dict) or isinstance(ele, set) for ele in row), test_list))
 
# printing result
print("Filtered Rows : " + str(res))

Output

The original list is : [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
Filtered Rows : [[1, [3, 4], 9], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]

Method #3 : Using filter()+lambda+type()

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Extract rows with Complex data types
# Using filter() + lambda + type()
 
# initializing list
test_list = [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
 
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
 
# checking for any of list, set, tuple or dictionary as complex structures
res = list(filter(lambda row: any(type(ele) is list or type(ele) is tuple
                                  or type(ele) is dict or type(ele) is set for ele in row), test_list))
 
# printing result
print("Filtered Rows : " + str(res))

Output

The original list is : [[4, 2, 5], [1, [3, 4], 9], [5], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
Filtered Rows : [[1, [3, 4], 9], [7, (2, 3), 3, 9]]
