Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types list.remove()

.remove function - Help?

Not sure if the states variable needs to be called and thats where i'm going wrong, or something to do with the removal of the last item being a string rather than an integer. I'm sure it's obvious.

"Use the .remove() method to remove the last item from the list, please." states = [ 'ACTIVE', ['red', 'green', 'blue'], 'CANCELLED', 'FINISHED', 5, ]

states list.remove(['blue'])

Bummer! SyntaxError: states list.remove(['blue'])

If I remove the states variable i get tis message back "Bummer! TypeError: remove() takes exactly one argument (0 given)"

states is your list so you don't need to include that part, instead it is just states.remove. Also it wants the last item in the array to be removed but you are removing the last item in the array inside of the states array. It should look like this:

states = [
    'ACTIVE',
    ['red', 'green', 'blue'],
    'CANCELLED',
    'FINISHED',
    5,
]
states.remove(5)

Doh.
