The previous video showcased three list techniques:

  1. Appending, which adds an item to a list
  2. Extending, which adds the items of one list to another
  3. Concatenating, which creates a new list by combining other lists

In task 2 you are asked to add all the items from the other list to the beatles list. The ideal way of doing that is by extending the beatles list. Like this:

beatles = ["John"]
others = ["George", "Ringo"]
# Your code here
beatles.extend(others) # Add all of the items from the other list into the beatles list
