# Python | Triplet iteration in List

• Last Updated : 19 Feb, 2020

List iteration is common in programming, but sometimes one requires to print the elements in consecutive triplets. This particular problem is quite common and having a solution to it always turns out to be handy. Lets discuss certain way in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension
List comprehension can be used to print the triplets by accessing current, next and next to next element in the list and then printing the same. Care has to be taken while pairing the last elements with the first ones to form a cyclic triplet pairs.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate ``# Triplet iteration in List``# using list comprehension``from` `itertools ``import` `compress`` ` `# initializing list ``test_list ``=` `[``0``, ``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``, ``5``]`` ` `# printing original list``print` `(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# using list comprehension``# Triplet iteration in List``res ``=` `[((i), (i ``+` `1``) ``%` `len``(test_list), (i ``+` `2``) ``%` `len``(test_list)) ``                                 ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``len``(test_list))]`` ` `# printing result``print` `(``"The triplet list is : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original list is : [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
The triplet list is : [(0, 1, 2), (1, 2, 3), (2, 3, 4), (3, 4, 5), (4, 5, 0), (5, 0, 1)]
```
