Python list delete item

Share Your Love

While delete an item from a list in python occurred in 4 ways:

  1. remove()
  2. pop() 
  3. del
  4. clear()

Remove Method:

The remove() method removes the specified item.

#Example => Remove "banana":

thislist = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
thislist.remove("banana")
print(thislist)

#Output
['apple', 'cherry']

Remove Specified Index:

Here the pop method removes the specified index.

#Example => Remove the second item:
thislist = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
thislist.pop(1)
print(thislist)

#Output
['apple', 'cherry']

If you do not specify the index, the pop() method removes the last item.

#Example => Remove the last item:
thislist = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
thislist.pop()
print(thislist)

#Output
['apple', 'banana']

There is another keyword called del to remove the specified index:

#Example: Remove the first item
thislist = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
del thislist[0]
print(thislist)

#Output
['banana', 'cherry']

Clear the list:

The clear() method delete all the items inside the list.

But at the end the list is present with no content.

#Example => Clear the list content:

thislist = ["apple", "banana", "cherry"]
thislist.clear()
print(thislist)

#Output:
[]
