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

I don't know what I am doing wrong. But states.remove(5) gives me a indentation error all the time. Don't see it

I am stuck in this simple pyhton exercise I don't know what I am doing wrong. But states.remove(5) gives me a indentation error all the time. Don't see it

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

The states.remove(5) should not be indented. You indent to mark a block of code. The list states is a block, but states.remove(5) is not part of any block.

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

states.remove(5)

Thank you
