Get Value from list via index stored in variable (Power Automate Desktop)

I have been coding for awhile and noticed that I cannot get a item from a list if the index is stored in a variable. I would need some help urgently

 

This is my set up : 

 

%Listname[%Index_Variable%]%

 

I would require assistance urgently

To provide a bit of explanation for @Zave correct answer. When using a variable inside a variable you can use just the name.  One set of '%' signs around the outside will designate that it is a variable.  To use it as text instead of a variable name put singe quotes around the text.  See here in the documentation.
