You need to be using parameters for the input and you are supposed to return a string "Invalid Index" if the index is invalid. I got tripped up because I thought the program was supposed to throw an information error (like you would expect).

Hi Jeff Muday thank you so much for your feedback. My first line is still giving a syntax error for my ([1,2,3] 1). Have i corrected the rest of my code properly?

def pop([1,2,3], 1):

for range in pop (1, len(pop)): return(range) pass
