Array elements can be removed using pop() or remove() method. The difference between these two functions is that the former returns the deleted value whereas the latter does not.

The pop() function takes either no parameter or the index value as its parameter. When no parameter is given, this function pops() the last element and returns it. When you explicitly supply the index value, the pop() function pops the required elements and returns it.

Example:
a=arr.array('d', [1.1, 2.2, 3.8, 3.1, 3.7, 1.2, 4.6])
print(a.pop())
print(a.pop(3))
Output –

4.6
3.1
The first pop() function removes the last value 4.6 and returns the same while the second one pops the value at the 4th position which is 3.1 and returns the same.

The remove() function, on the other hand, is used to remove the value where we do not need the removed value to be returned. This function takes the element value itself as the parameter. If you give the index value in the parameter slot, it will throw an error.

Example:
a=arr.array('d',[1.1 , 2.1 ,3.1])
a.remove(1.1)
print(a)
Output –

array(‘d’, [2.1,3.1])

The output is an array containing all elements except 1.1.
