Sometimes, while working with Python lists, we can have a problem in which we intend to find the position of maximum element of list. This task is easy and discussed many times. But sometimes, we can have multiple maximum elements and hence multiple maximum positions. Let’s discuss a shorthand to achieve this task in this case.
Method : Using
max() + enumerate() + list comprehension
In this method, the combination of above functions is used to perform this particular task. This is performed in two steps. In 1st, we acquire the maximum element and then access the list using list comprehension and corresponding element using enumerate and extract every element position equal to maximum element processed in step 1.
The original list : [8, 4, 6, 8, 2, 8] The Positions of maximum element : [0, 3, 5]
