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

Why are these code challenges so much more difficult than the others in this track?

Any ideas?

They don't seem nearly as difficult once they are solved. :wink:

Don't take my attempt at humor the wrong way, no insult is intended. What I meant was that as you learn, it's normal for some topics to "sink in" readily where others may take a bit longer. The moment at which the solution occurs is sometimes referred to as the "aha!" moment. Once you have had that experience, your perspective shifts and things that seemed difficult before don't seem so bad anymore.

I'm suggesting that you may have reached a point in your progress where that "aha!" experience is taking a bit longer, so for the moment the material seems harder than what you've done previously. The fact that it came much more easily before is just evidence of your learning ability. I expect you'll soon have the same experience with the current material, and once you do it won't seem as it was so difficult after all.

You don't seem nearly as dickish until you comment thusly.
