Any way to get [(x,y),(x,y),(x,y).....] because I have no idea , but a good hint would help a lot.

# combo([1, 2, 3], 'abc')
# Output:
# [(1, 'a'), (2, 'b'), (3, 'c')]

def combo(x,y):
    output = []
    index = int()
    for i in enumerate(y):
    return output

You are very close!

  • the enumerate function produces two items, a count and an item from the iterable. The for loop should have two variables to receive them, such as for index, item
  • with these two items, you can construct a tuple by using the index to get an item from one iterable along with the item
  • the line index = int() is not needed

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
