Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Removing items from a list

messy_list can't figure out what's wrong with step 2

I've typed in del instead of .remove() but no matter what i do it keeps telling me i still have items to remove in the list. I'm confused on why just a simple remove() won't work with the value's given

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

# Your code goes below here
messy_list.pop(3)
messy_list.insert(0, 1)
messy_list.remove(False)
messy_list.remove("a")

Hey Byron, the challenge: "Great! Now use .remove() and/or del to remove the string, the boolean, and the list from inside of messy_list. When you're done, messy_list should have only integers in it." You should remove the list, too.
