In order to perform some debugging, I'd like to enable multiple (say n) modes: mode-1, mode-2, ..., mode-n. This can be done thanks to a C-x C-e at the end of each of the following lines:

(mode-1 t)
(mode-2 t)
(mode-n t)

but this is a pain if n is large (more than 50). Is it possible to achieve the same result in one shot?

you can use progn to wrap an elisp body (multiple statements):

  (mode-1 t)
  (mode-2 t)
  ;; ...
  (mode-n t)

Evaluate using C-x C-e on last parentheses.
