To remove a list element, you can use either the del statement if you know exactly which element(s) you are deleting or the remove() method if you do not know.

list1 = ['physics', 'chemistry', 1997, 2000];
print list1
del list1[2];
print "After deleting value at index 2 : "
print list1


When the above code is executed, it produces the following result −

['physics', 'chemistry', 1997, 2000]
After deleting value at index 2 :
['physics', 'chemistry', 2000]

Note − remove() method is discussed in subsequent section.
