Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Lists Removing items from a list

That task one is no longer passing, again.

HERE IS THE QUESTION FROM THE TASK

Great! Now use .remove() and/or del to remove the string, the boolean, and the list from inside of messy_list. When you're done, messy_list should have only integers in it.

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

messy_list.pop(3)
messy_list.insert(0, 1)
messy_list.remove("a")
messy_list.remove(False)
messy_list.del(5)

Two problems.

First, the syntax on del is wrong. Second, once you remove the string and the boolean, the list you are trying to move at index 5 is no longer at index 5. This will work:

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

messy_list.insert(0, messy_list.pop(3))
messy_list.remove("a")
messy_list.remove(False)
del messy_list[3]
