Does any one have a code for picking combinations of elements from different sets? For e.g.: If A={(1, 2), (3,4,5)}, I need a function that returns {(1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5),(2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5)}

You could very easily write this code. Think about each. each combination of 2 is 1 element from the 1st set and 1 element from the second. All you need is two nested for loops to iterate through the elements of each set and output (or otherwise process) the combination represented by the two indeces.
