Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types list.remove()

Hi, For some reason the second task in Python Basics is not parsing.

Code: states = [ 'ACTIVE', ['red', 'green', 'blue'], 'CANCELLED', 'FINISHED', 5 ]

states.remove(['red', 'green', 'blue'])

Does not pass. I get "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer parsing"

lists.py
states = [
    'ACTIVE',
    ['red', 'green', 'blue'],
    'CANCELLED',
    'FINISHED',
    5
]

states.remove(['red', 'green', 'blue'])

:point_right: You must leave your task 1 code and add to it.

When you have multiple-task challenges, each task builds on the work done in the previous task. So be sure to not remove the work you did previously as you perform the new task.

You missed The code for task 1 or accidentally deleted it .

states.remove(5)
states.remove(['red', 'green', 'blue'])
