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

I am trying to remove last item in this question. The last item is 5. I am getting value error. Please help.

Ugh, I made this list and now it has some invalid pieces in it. Maybe you can help me clean it up. Use the .remove() method to remove the last item from the list, please.

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

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

Ghulam, you don't need brackets as the last item is not a list:

states.remove(5)
states.remove(['red', 'green', 'blue'])

But the 2 item is, so when you remove it you do need the brackets.
