Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Creating lists

List I have tried this Question but it doesn't work

my_list=[ "1", "6", "4", "Apple", "Orange", "James" ] member=["We", "Gat"]

member=["We", "Gat"]

With what you have try:

    ["We", "Gat"]

Some things:

  • numbers shouldn't be enclosed in quotes
  • you only want two strings. you have added three
  • the last list item in my_list should be another list

I believe its asking for a list inside a list like this.

my_list = ["mouse", [8, 4, 6], ['a']]

It doesn't work yet

This is the actual question: This challenge is just meant as a refresher. Create a single new list variable named my_list. Put 3 numbers and 2 strings into it in whatever order you want. For the last member, though, add another list with 2 items in it.


my_list = [12,13,14,"apple","pear" [15,"orange"]]

This is the correct answer.
