#since list contains only one element, given r value is 2. So it returns empty list.
l4=itertools.combinations(["ABC"],2)
print (list(l4))#Output:[]
#In combinations_with_replacement,it allows repeated element.

print (list(l4))#Output:[('ABC', 'ABC')]
#r value is not mentioned. It will raise TypeError

#print (list(l5))#Output:TypeError: combinations() missing required argument 'r' (pos 2)
