Python's list.insert(~) method inserts an element to a list at the specified index.

Parameters

1. index | number

The index of the element before which we will insert the new element.

2. element | any type

The element to be inserted into the list.

Return value

None

Examples

To insert 'banana' into fruits list before element at index position 1 ('pear'):

fruits = ['apple', 'pear', 'orange']
fruits.insert(1, 'banana')
print(fruits)
['apple', 'banana', 'pear', 'orange']

We can see that 'banana' was inserted before 'pear' which previously occupied index position 1.
