Python | Remove duplicate tuples from list of tuples

Given a list of tuples, Write a Python program to remove all the duplicated tuples from the given list.

Examples:

Input : [(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6), (1, 2)]
Output : [(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6)]

Input : [('a', 'z'), ('a', 'x'), ('z', 'x'), ('a', 'x'), ('z', 'x')]
Output : [('a', 'z'), ('a', 'x'), ('z', 'x')]

Method #1 : List comprehension

This is a naive approach to use list comprehension. Here, we use two for loops and set data structure to cancel out all the duplicates.




# Python3 program to remove duplicate 
# tuples from list of tuples
  
def removeDuplicates(lst):
      
    return [t for t in (set(tuple(i) for i in lst))]
          
# Driver code
lst = [(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6), (1, 2)]
print(removeDuplicates(lst))
Output:



[(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6)]

 
Method #2 : List comprehension (Efficient approach)

This method is efficient as compared to the above method, here we use a single for loop within list comprehension and then convert it to set to remove duplicates and then again convert it to list.




# Python3 program to remove duplicate 
# tuples from list of tuples
  
def removeDuplicates(lst):
      
    return list(set([i for i in lst]))
          
# Driver code
lst = [(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6), (1, 2)]
print(removeDuplicates(lst))
Output:
[(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6)]

 
Method #3 : Python enumerate() method




# Python3 program to remove duplicate 
# tuples from list of tuples
  
def removeDuplicates(lst):
      
    return [[a, b] for i, [a, b] in enumerate(lst) 
    if not any(c == b for _, c in lst[:i])]
          
# Driver code
lst = [(1, 2), (5, 7), (3, 6), (1, 2)]
print(removeDuplicates(lst))
Output:
[[1, 2], [5, 7], [3, 6]]
