# Drop

 Drop[list, n]gives list with its first n elements dropped. Drop[list, -n]gives list with its last n elements dropped. Drop[list, {n}]gives list with its n element dropped. Drop[list, {m, n}]gives list with elements m through n dropped. Drop[list, {m, n, s}]gives list with elements m through n in steps of s dropped. Drop[list, seq1, seq2, ...]gives a nested list in which elements specified by seqi have been dropped at level i in list.
• Drop uses the standard sequence specification:
 All all elements None no elements n elements 1 through n -n last n elements {n} element n only {m,n} elements m through n inclusive {m,n,s} elements m through n in steps of s
• Drop can be used on an object with any head, not necessarily List.
• For a matrix, Drop[list, seq1, seq2] effectively drops all elements except those in a submatrix of list.
Drop the first two elements from a list:
 Out[1]=

Drop the last 3 elements:
 Out[1]=

Drop elements 2 through 4:
 Out[1]=
