insert() is an inbuilt function in Python that inserts a given element at a given index in a list.
index - the index at which the element has to be inserted. element - the element to be inserted in the list.
This method does not return any value but it inserts the given element at the given index.
If anything other then a list is used with insert(), then it returns an AttributeError.
Note : If given index >= length(list) is given, then it inserts at the end of the list.
