Are you referring to this:

['EVEN' if x%2==0 else 'ODD' for x in range(10)]

If you are asking how to achieve the above code using list
comprehensions, then try

return ["All equal" if i==j and j==k else (
"2 equal" if (i==j and j!=k) or (i==k and j!=k) \
else "None equal")
for i in range(10)
for j in range(10)
for k in range(10)]

For convenience, I pasted the code here: http://gist.github.com/185695

Speaking personally, your original code is just fine - it is simpler
than the list comprehension version above.
