Move the 1 to position 0. You can do this in one step with .pop() and .insert().

I've come up with something pretty logical but I apparently am only deleting the 1 and not "Moving" it.

Help plz :]

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


# Your code goes below here
the_list.insert(0, 1)
the_list.pop(3)

1 Answer

Try this:

the_list.insert(0,the_list.pop(3))
