They way I understand the question is:
-> the first element of the ordered pair is the position of the pair in the list, and
-> the second element of the ordered pair is the element from List in the corresponding position.
in other words if the list is the following: [q,w,e,r]
the result should be: [(1,q), (2,w), (3,e), (4,r)]
-> R = [(1 ',' whatever1),(2 ',' whatever2),(3 ',' whatever3)]
