Python Itertools: Exercise-43 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the maximum difference between pairs in a given list.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from itertools import combinations
from heapq import nlargest

def test(lst):
    result = nlargest(1, combinations(lst, 2),
               key=lambda sub: abs(sub[0] - sub[1]))
    return result

marks = [32,14,90,10,22,42,31]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print("\nFind maximum difference pair of the said list:")

Sample Output:

Original list:
[32, 14, 90, 10, 22, 42, 31]

Find maximum difference pair of the said list:
[(90, 10)]
