Lists in python basics

It tells me "Ugh, I made this list and now it has some invalid pieces in it. Maybe you can help me clean it up. Use the .remove() method to remove the last item from the list, please."

But when I did states.remove(["blue"]) it didnt work

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