You canot sneak a statement like

>     a = a + 1

into a list comprehension, you have to modify the expressions. Given

[[...] for a in range(2, 5) for b in range(3)]

what expression replacing the ... would give the expected result?

Hint: it depends on both a and b.

Once you have figured it out you can try and reshuffle it a bit into

[[b] for a in range(2, 5) for b in range(...)]
