Python Python Collections (Retired) Lists Redux Manipulating Lists

What am I doing wrong?

The task 1 no longer passes after typing the last line.

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

# Your code goes below here
the_list.insert(0, the_list.pop(3))

the_list.remove("a")
the_list.remove(False)
the_list.remove([1,2,3])
the_list.extend(list(range(20)))

You have only put in one argument for your range. It needs two arguments. You should already have [1, 2, 3] in your list. To get the rest of the numbers you need to write:

the_list.extend(range(4, 21))

you write 21 because 20 will have the index 21 as you already know index starts from zero. I hope this helps. I'm no expert :)

Yep, that does it. Thank you very much.
