Hello everyone,

just learned about the .remove method. However, if I wanted to remove an item in a list in relation to its index, how do I go about this?
…considering the fact that .remove does not accept any parameter, other than the actual item to be removed.

You could use the del statement- https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/datastructures.html#the-del-statement, del lst[index]

Oh, thank you. This is extra, and very useful. I later found what I was looking for.

The .pop method. We can remove an item in a list in relation to it’s index. But your response taught me something new, and I appreciate!

Hi everyone,
is there a method to remove more than one item at a time?
