How do i use .remove()

How would i remove the last item in this?

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

Hey Pedro!

there are a lot of ways to do it. I personally prefer the remove() method.


This will remove the integer 5 from the list. Another example: To remove the list at index 2 (['red', 'green', 'blue']). Just use:

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

THANK YOU a thousand ;)

It works the same, pop also returns the value at the end, but your not required to use it.
