# Python | Make pair from two list such that elements are not same in pairs

Given two lists, the task is to create pairs of elements (pairs can be repeated) from two list such that elements are not same in pairs.

Examples:

```Input : list1 = [100, 20, 30, 400]
list2 = [400, 2, 30]
Output:
[[100, 400], [100, 2], [100, 30],
[20, 400], [20, 2], [20, 30],
[30, 400], [30, 2], [400, 2], [400, 30]]

Input: list1 = [10,20,30,40]
list2 = [60, 10, 20]
Output:
[[10, 60], [10, 20], [20, 60], [20, 10],
[30, 60], [30, 10], [30, 20],
[40, 60], [40, 10], [40, 20]]
```

Method #1: Using list comprehension

 `# Python code to create pair of element  ` `# from two list such that element  ` `# in pairs are not equal. ` ` `  `# List initialization ` `list1 ``=``[``10``, ``20``, ``30``, ``40``] ` `list2 ``=``[``40``, ``50``, ``60``] ` ` `  `# using list comprehension ` `output ``=` `[[a, b] ``for` `a ``in` `list1  ` `          ``for` `b ``in` `list2 ``if` `a !``=` `b] ` ` `  `# printing output ` `print``(output) `

Output:

[[10, 40], [10, 50], [10, 60], [20, 40], [20, 50], [20, 60], [30, 40], [30, 50], [30, 60], [40, 50], [40, 60]]

Method #2: Using itertools and iteration

 `# Python code to create pair of element  ` `# from two list such that element  ` `# in pairs are not equal. ` ` `  `# Importing ` `import` `itertools ` ` `  `# List initialization ` `list1 ``=``[``11``, ``22``, ``33``, ``44``] ` `list2 ``=``[``22``, ``44``, ``66``] ` ` `  `# using itertools ` `temp ``=` `list``(itertools.product(list1, list1)) ` ` `  `# output list initialization ` `out ``=` `[] ` ` `  `# iteration ` `for` `elem ``in` `temp: ` `    ``if` `elem[``0``]!``=` `elem[``1``]: ` `        ``out.append(elem) ` ` `  `# printing output ` `print``(out) `

Output:

[(11, 22), (11, 33), (11, 44), (22, 11), (22, 33), (22, 44), (33, 11), (33, 22), (33, 44), (44, 11), (44, 22), (44, 33)]
