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'm telling my program to print out line 53 of an output. Is this error telling me that there aren't that many lines and therefore can not print it out?

IndexError occurs when the item you want to retrieve is not found in the sequence like a list or tuple.
Indexing in Python starts from 0.

For Example:

Checking = list(range(53))
Checking[53]

Output

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-76-2de027faa7a5> in <module>
      1 Checking = list(range(53))
----> 2 Checking[53]

IndexError: list index out of range

Correct way:

Checking[52]

Output

52

Thus, the index in iterables like list, string or tuples needs to be taken care of.
