Hi ! Look carefully at the indexes when you delete things, remember that if you delete an item, the index of item that was next to it has now decremented

Whoever wrote in those comments had a good idea, you might want to use "remove" instead of "del" to avoid having to keep track of index numbers.
Another trick that might be helpful is using negative index numbers, which are relative to the end of the list instead of the beginning.
