Can't seem to pass the challenge

when I try do the last part, it says Bummer! Looks like the_list doesn't have all of the right items in it.

lists.py
the_list = ["a", 2, 3, 1, False, [1, 2, 3]]

# Your code goes below here
the_list.pop(3)
the_list.insert(0,1)
the_list.remove("a")
the_list.remove(False)
the_list.remove([1,2,3])
the_list.extend(range(2,21))

Laknath, good until the last, although you could have done Task 1 in one step.

the_list.insert(0,the_list.pop(3))
the_list.remove("a")
the_list.remove(False)
the_list.remove([1,2,3])
the_list.extend(range(4,21))

The issue with the last step is that you already have 1, 2 and 3 in the list, so you just need 4 to 20, not 2 to 20, as you have.
