I tried various things but I'm unable to get the right answer. Could someone please complete the code for me. Thanks

lists.py
the_list = ["a", 2, 3, 1, False, [1, 2, 3]]

# Your code goes below here
the_list.insert(0, the_list.pop(3))

Your code passed the part 1 challenge, so are you having trouble with part 2 here?

For part 2, it's really simple, the question asked you to remove some items from the list, using either del or remove(), it's ok to manually remove those items one line at a time, no need to write a loop or do anything fancy here.

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

# Your code goes below here
the_list.insert(0, the_list.pop(3))

the_list.remove("a")
the_list.remove(False)
the_list.remove([1,2,3])

Does it make sense?

yup I got it. thank you for your response
