# Python code to demonstrate 
# how to join pair of elements of list
  
# Initialising list
ini_list = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f']
  
# Printing initial list 
print ("Initial list", str(ini_list))
  
# Pairing the elements of lists
res = [i + j for i, j in zip(ini_list[::2], ini_list[1::2])]
  
# Printing final result
print ("Result", str(res))

Output:



Initial list ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f']
Result ['ab', 'cd', 'ef']
