I'm not sure that I have understood the question correctly, it was a little bit diffuse. Anyhow, if I assume you wish to add something to a list and make it the last item, in that case you just have to .append() it. Like so :

my_list = ["something", "something else", "something other than else", "and so on"]

my_list.append(1)

print(my_list) 

# Output : 
["something", "something else", "something other than else", "and so on", 1]

So the correct function call is ".append()".

I hope this helped. Good luck.

Tnx for lending help. It worked
