Hi reynier,

The syntax for .remove() is like this:

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

Hello, it seems you've modified the array and removed a end bracket ] from the array. The complete code should look like this:

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

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