How to remove an item from a list in Python

The standard way to remove an item from a list is to use remove (opens new window) by specifying the item you want removed. This will remove the first occurrence of the item specified in the list. One thing to note is that if the item specified does not exist, a ValueError (opens new window) will be raised. You can also use del (opens new window) to remove an item from the list by specifying the index.
