Python Python Collections (Retired) Lists Redux Manipulating Lists

Python Collections, Manipulating Lists, 3 objectives


i am having some problems here. I have added the lists.py. Exercise asks for the third task to add range 3-20 to the 1, 2, 3 which are already present in the list. I am trying to add the numbers by the following command the_list.extend(range(4,21)), but for some odd reason i get error and the task does not complete. I cant find what i could be doing wrong here. Would appreciate if someone could help me.

Best Regards,

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

# Your code goes below here
list = the_list
the_list.insert(0, 1)
the_list.remove([1, 2, 3])
the_list.extend(range(4, 21))

If you take out: list = the_list it should work.

Andrius is right.

Apparently, creating the "list" variable confuses the challenge checker.

Thank you a lot guys, worked nicely!
