Python lists are commonly used to store data types. Lists are a collection of information typically called a container. Think of a physical container that can hold all kinds of objects, not just one object of the same type. Python includes a built-in list type called a list. They can be managed by many built-in functions that help fill, iterate over, add to, and delete them.
