I have a list containing two types of data elements (say A & B). Some
actions (say 1 & 2) can be performed on Type A only, some (say 3 & 4) on
Type B only and some (say 5 & 6) on both Type A & Type B. What would be the
best UI to display these interactions? It would be awkward if only the
allowed actions are enabled based on the items selected. Its not possible to
separate the two types of data elements.

Color code or iconic pair. Make the available actions more prominent
when in focus.

Same as above only "and" instead of "or". And an off-the-screen
hidden label for screen-readers also. If you intend to or need to be
508 compliant.
