Sometimes, while working with Python lists, we can have a problem in which we have boolean list and require to have indices of True and False values separately. This can have a possible use in Data Science domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using loop
This is the one way in which this task can be performed. We create different lists and check for True or False values using conditional statements and append it’s index accordingly in dedicated lists.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Segregate True and False value indices
# using loops
  
# initialize list
test_list = [False, True, False, False, True, True]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
# Segregate True and False value indices
# using loops
res_true, res_false = [], []
for i in range(0, len(test_list)):
    if test_list[i]:
        res_true.append(i)
    else :
        res_false.append(i)
  
# printing result
print("True indices after grouping : " + str(res_true))
print("False indices after grouping : " + str(res_false))

Output :

The original list is : [False, True, False, False, True, True]
True indices after grouping : [1, 4, 5]
False indices after grouping : [0, 2, 3]

 

Method #2 : Using loop + enumerate()
This task can be solved in a brute manner by using above functionalities. In this, we make a choice of append list and add elements accordingly in dedicated lists.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Segregate True and False value indices
# using loop + enumerate()
  
# initialize list
test_list = [False, True, False, False, True, True]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
# Segregate True and False value indices
# using loop + enumerate()
res_true, res_false = [], []
for i, ele in enumerate(test_list):
    temp = res_true if ele else res_false
    temp.append(i)
  
# printing result
print("True indices after grouping : " + str(res_true))
print("False indices after grouping : " + str(res_false))

Output :

The original list is : [False, True, False, False, True, True]
True indices after grouping : [1, 4, 5]
False indices after grouping : [0, 2, 3]
