Try this

>>> a=['2', '5', '7', '5', '5']

>>> d=list(set(a))

>>> d

Is there any reason why your numbers are in quotes???

Hope this helps.

How to remove the coming duplication,

Here I wrote one (not working):

>>> a=['2', '5', '7', '5', '5']
>>> for i in range(len(a)-1):
	if a[i+1]==a[i]:
	if i not in range(len(a)):

>>> a
['2', '7', '5', '5']

I wish to get a is [2,5,7,5]

just remove the coming duplication, not unique the list.

Thanks for any advice,
