Hi Alex,

You can do the following:

Let    givenlist = { {1, 23}, {2, 24}, {3, 25}, {4, 26} }

To extract the second element in each sublist, you can use Map and Last like

Map[ Last,  givenlist ]

which will give you a vector containing the second elements of the sublists.

If you wish to regard each second element of the original list as a list, you 
can map List to the above result like

Map[ List,  Map[Last, givenlist] ]

This is effectively a column matrix.

I hope this helps.
