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

How do I remove all of the colors now??

I need to remove all 3 values now, instead of 1. How do I do that??

states = [
    ['red', 'green', 'blue'],

Hello again,

First, make sure you keep the states.remove(5) from the previous step - you usually don't want to delete past steps unless it tells you to. For this one, you can pass a list to .remove(). It looks like this:

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

You're basically telling it to find that specific list and remove it.
