Difference between pop and delete methods

Two methods are used to delete elements from a list in python - pop() and delete(). What is the difference between them? I've seen both being in different places.

I think you mean del() and not delete().

del() simply removes an item from the list at the index specified.

pop() removes the item from the index and returns it.
