How do I merge two C# Lists?

How do I join two C# lists is one of the most frequently asked questions. You use the AddRange method to merge two C# lists. The AddRange method of C# List takes a collection of similar objects. For example, the following code snippet creates two lists of int types. The AddRange method adds all items of evenList to the end of the oddList.

public class Program
    private static void Main(string[] args)
        Console.WriteLine("Add two C# Lists");

        // Create a list of 5 odd numbers
        List<int> oddList = new() { 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 };

        // Create a list of 5 event numbers
        List<int> evenList = new() { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 };

        // Merge evenList to oddList

        // Display all 10 numbers
        foreach (int num in oddList)


Note: You cannot merge two C# lists of different types. For example, the following code snippet tried to merge a list of strings with a list of numbers.

// Create a list of strings
List<string> authors = new() { "Cow", "Camel", "Elephant" };

The C# compiler throws an error - Cannot convert a string to an int type.
