Create a function called pop. It will take 2 parameters, a list and an index. For example: [1,2,

def pop(list1, index): try: return list1.pop() except IndexError: return ('Invalid Index')

pop.py
def pop(list1, index):
    try:
        return list1.pop()
    except IndexError:
        return ('Invalid Index')

This code is not making use of the index. It needs it to remove the correct element.

But also, the instructions say to "remove the element at that index. Then return the list", but this code is returning the removed element instead of the list.

And while it won't cause a problem, the parentheses are not needed around the string on the last line.
