I have no idea with my code

I don't know why I cannot use remove()

the_list = ["a", 2, 3, 1, False, [1, 2, 3]]

# Your code goes below here
the_list.remove("a", False, [1, 2, 3])

Hi there! You're using the remove method to remove the items. The problem here is that it can only remove one thing at a time. You can only send in one item to be removed with each remove method. Take a look:


As you see here, it's much the same as your code except that it's done one at a time. This is a restriction of the remove method.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you so so much :)
