The error says the list is not callable because you are trying to access/use a python list but using parenthesis for it. Parenthesis are used to call a function and because a list is not a function, you get this error. To access/use a python list, you should use square brackets. Try this:

print worldlists[len(words)]

Hi, @Ganapuram,

Could you please post here what you are trying to do and what exactly your error is? It will be helpful for me to investigate on that.

by doing so i m getting ##even we use square brackets its showing that in the bracket its hould be indexing or slicing but not range##

Try to print your output within a bracket.

print (worldlists[len(words)])
