r u sure u r entering elements separated by comma https://code.sololearn.com/cTjSwe2Q03e2/?ref=app u can try using above code . it works fine for me

input function will return you a string. u have to convert that string into a list based on how u enter the data using split method eg: if u give input as 1,2,3,4,5 then by using split on the string as shown in my code will give u a list [1,2,3,4,5].

remember insert is a method of list object and it takes 2 arguments but u have given 3 arguments. and u were getting attribute error as insert method is not there in string object

at the index 2 the list is assigned
