How To Remove An Element From A List By Index

To remove an element from a list in Python by index, you can use the pop(index) method. The pop() method removes and returns the element located at the specified index.

Here’s an example:

my_list = ['apple', 'banana', 'cherry', 'date', 'elderberry']

# Removing the element at index 2 (cherry)
removed_element = my_list.pop(2)

print(my_list)          # Output: ['apple', 'banana', 'date', 'elderberry']
print(removed_element)  # Output: cherry

In this example, the pop(2) statement removes the element at index 2 (cherry) from the my_list list and assigns it to the variable removed_element. The updated list is then printed using print(my_list) and the removed element is printed using print(removed_element).
