Python program to remove duplicate elements index from other list

  • Last Updated : 13 Sep, 2021
Geek Week

Given two lists, the task is to write a Python program to remove all the index elements from 2nd list which are duplicate element indices from 1st list.

Examples:

Input : test_list1 = [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8, 6], test_list2 = [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11] 
Output : [1, 7, 6, 9, 10] 
Explanation : 3, 7 and 11 correspond to 2nd occurrence of 5, 3 and 6, hence removed.

Input : test_list1 = [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8], test_list2 = [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10] 
Output : [1, 7, 6, 9, 10] 
Explanation : 3 and 7 correspond to 2nd occurrence of 5 and 3 hence removed. 
 

Method 1: Using list comprehension + loop + enumerate()



In this, we perform task of getting all the indices using enumerate() and loop using set to store already occurred elements. Then, same indices from other list are omitted.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Remove duplicate elements index from other list
# Using list comprehension + loop + enumerate()
  
# initializing lists
test_list1 = [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8, 6]
test_list2 = [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11]
               
# printing original lists
print("The original list 1 is : " + str(test_list1))
print("The original list 2 is : " + str(test_list2))
  
oc_set = set() 
temp = [] 
  
# getting duplicate elements list
for idx, val in enumerate(test_list1): 
    if val not in oc_set: 
        oc_set.add(val)          
    else
        temp.append(idx)
  
# excluding duplicate indices from other list
res = [ele for idx, ele in enumerate(test_list2) if idx not in temp]
  
# printing result
print("The list after removing duplicate indices : " + str(res))

 Output:

The original list 1 is : [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8, 6]
The original list 2 is : [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11]
The list after removing duplicate indices : [1, 7, 6, 9, 10]

 Method 2: Using list comprehension + enumerate()

In this, we perform similar task as above just in a shorthand manner, extracting indices using enumerate() and list comprehension.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Remove duplicate elements index from other list
# Using list comprehension + enumerate()
  
# initializing lists
test_list1 = [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8, 6]
test_list2 = [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11]
               
# printing original lists
print("The original list 1 is : " + str(test_list1))
print("The original list 2 is : " + str(test_list2))
  
# getting duplicate elements list using list comprehension
temp = [idx for idx, val in enumerate(test_list1) if val in test_list1[:idx]]
  
# excluding duplicate indices from other list
res = [ele for idx, ele in enumerate(test_list2) if idx not in temp]
  
# printing result
print("The list after removing duplicate indices : " + str(res))

Output:

The original list 1 is : [3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 8, 6]
The original list 2 is : [1, 7, 6, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11]
The list after removing duplicate indices : [1, 7, 6, 9, 10]
