This may not be the most clean way, if someone knows a better way please add your comments.

When accessing parts of a multi-demensional list you can call by indexes like with a normal list. For example... if I have this list: things = [[1, 2, 3, 4], ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']] I can access the letter 'a' like this: `things[1][0]'.

That being said if you want to move an item from one list to another you could do something like:


That example would add 1 from the first list, and append it to the second one. Then the second line of code would remove the 1 from the first list.

The end result when calling my things list would be: [[2, 3, 4], ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 1]]

I hope this was helpful!
