List pop (Python) - How to delete or remove from list by index

pop removes the element from a list in Python. pop(1) means deleting the second item from a list.

x = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']


print(x)  # ['a', 'c', 'd']

pop takes only one argument so the following is incorrect.

x = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

x.pop(1, 2)
# TypeError: pop expected at most 1 argument, got 2
