How to remove the particular symbol in a string


I am using string which contains some values.

List<string> result = new List<string>();

result = "A1-B1-C1-D1-_F1";

when symbol "-_" found in the result string then it should take only or consider "_".

So the final string would be "A1-B1-C1-D1_F1"

string result = "A1-B1-C1-D1-_F1";
result = result.Replace("-_", "_");

result is now "A1-B1-C1-D1_F1"

No, it is a List<string>

List<String> values = new List<string> { "A1-B1-C1-D1-_F1", "A1-B1-C1-D1-_G1", "A1-B1-C1-D1-_H1", "A1-B1-C1-D1-_I1" };
values = values.Select(s => s.Replace("-_", "_")).ToList();

Actually the question is confusing.
First it says result, as you say, is a List<string> then it shows that result is a string, not a List<string> at all.
