The elements to be removed are positioned past the sequence’s end. remove() is declared in the header as follows:

However, remove() doesn’t actually reduce the size of the sequence nor does it erase the removed elements. Instead, it copies the values that are to be retained to the beginning of the sequence, while pushing the
