Does IndexError list index out of range when trying to access the N th item mean that my list has less than N items

I have been trying to instruct the program to print the line 53 of the output but there is an error occurring which says that I have used insufficient lines and therefore cannot print it out. Does this mean that my list has less than the required N items?

I am assuming that you have a 53 items list and if so, the final item needs the thelist[52] tag due to the reason of the indexing starting at 0. An IndexError is brought into account once the user tries to retrieve the index from a given sequence such as a tuple wherein, the index is not found in that sequence. The exception for this in Python is raised when the subscript of the sequence is out of the range. Refer to the example below that gets the IndexError:-

test = list(range(53)) 
IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last) 
<ipython-input-6-7879607f7f36> in <module> 
        1 test = list(range(53)) 
----> 2 test[53]
