Map a pure function such as f[[#]]&. For instance, depending on whether 
the expression holds some values before the mapping or not,

In[1]:= f = {1.1, 1.2, 1.3};
(f[[#1]] & ) /@ Range[3]

Out[2]= {1.1, 1.2, 1.3}

In[3]:= (HoldForm[g[[#1]]] & ) /@ Range[3]
g = {1, 2, 3};

Out[3]= {HoldForm[g[[1]]], HoldForm[g[[2]]], HoldForm[g[[3]]]}

Out[5]= {1, 2, 3}
