Um, I'm still a bit confused.

Suppose item == list2[10].  Does that mean you want to print item and list2[10]?

Won't that just mean you print item twice?

You can find the position of an element in a list by using the
list.index() method, but I'm still not sure exactly what you're trying
to do here.
