Python's `enumerate(~)` method returns an enumerate object. An enumerate object simply consists of tuples of the count and its corresponding element in the iterable.

# Parameters

1. `iterable` | `iterable`

The iterable object for which we should retrieve a count of elements for.

2. `start`link | `integer` | `optional`

To number to start counting from. Defaults to `0`.

# Return value

An enumerate object consisting of tuples of the count and its corresponding element in the iterable.

# Examples

## Basic usage

To create an indexed list of alphabet letters:

``` alphabet = ['a','b','c','d']indexed_alphabet = enumerate(alphabet)indexed_alphabet_list = list(indexed_alphabet)print(indexed_alphabet_list) [(0, 'a'), (1, 'b'), (2, 'c'), (3, 'd')] ```

Notice how the returned enumerate object consists of tuples of the count and corresponding alphabet letter in the iterable.

## Start

To specify start of 2:

``` alphabet = ['a','b','c','d']indexed_alphabet = enumerate(alphabet, start=2)indexed_alphabet_list = list(indexed_alphabet)print(indexed_alphabet_list) [(2, 'a'), (3, 'b'), (4, 'c'), (5, 'd')] ```

Notice how the count of index starts from `2` now and not `0`.
