Programming is mostly about splitting a complex task into baby steps.

Do you know how to open a file?
Do you know how to iterate over the lines of that file?
Do you know how to search for a string in that line (i. e. another string)?
Do you know how to delete a file?

Work through a Python tutorial or the first chapters of beginner's textbook, 
then try your hand at each of the subtasks outlined above. Consult the 
documentation for missing parts. 

Once you have some code we will help you improve or even fix it.

What we won't do is write a program for you ready to present to your 
teacher.
