Hey there, I am not sure what exactly you are looking for but let me try to assist you. When I run your script with print(len(my_list)) it returned 6, so your list contains 6 items as you were expecting. Just give it another try. Good luck!

You need 6 items: 3 numbers, 2 strings, 1 list

Right now you have 6 items: 4 numbers, 2 strings, 0 list

Try using append instead of extend and remove the pop statement
