Input : [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5], [6, 7, 8, 9]] Output : [3, 5, 9] Input : [['x', 'y', 'z'], ['m'], ['a', 'b'], ['u', 'v']] Output : ['z', 'm', 'b', 'v']
Approach #1 : List comprehension
[3, 5, 9]
Approach #2 : Using zip and unpacking(*) operator
This method uses zip with * or unpacking operator which passes all the items inside the ‘lst’ as arguments to zip function. There is a little trick with extracting last item of list, Instead of using direct zip, use the reversed list iterators.
(3, 5, 9)
Another way of using
zip is to use it with Python
reversed as function.
Approach #3 : Using
