Python Python Collections (Retired) Lists Redux Manipulating Lists

HELLO! how do you handle the problem of "communication problem".

Python

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

# Your code goes below here
a_list = the_list.pop(3)

the_list.insert(0, a_list)

Hello, most of the times I have communication problems, I just refresh my browser and begin again. It sucks, I know, but at least it makes you type again and become more proficient.

Thanks

Hi I see your asking about communication but after just finishing this code challenge last night I wish to make you aware that you can do the above without a variable.

You can also use the_list.insert(0, the_list.pop(3))

Both do the same but not using a variable is a little more efficient.

Thanks,

Aaryn

That'll be a problem with the servers that run the code challenges, not actually with your code or the challenge itself.

Thanks Kenneth
