We have provided an extensive tutorial of list comprehensions. Sometimes, the syntax of the list comprehensions that deal with
if-elif-else conditions can be tricky and that is why we provide an example.
Scenario: You are dealing with product reviews that take values from 1 to 5 and you want to create three categories:
- Good if the review is greater or equal to 4
- Neutral if the review is 3
- Negative if the review is less than 3
x = [1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1] ["Good" if i>=4 else "Neutral" if i==3 else "Bad" for i in x]
['Bad', 'Bad', 'Neutral', 'Good', 'Good', 'Good', 'Neutral', 'Bad', 'Bad']
