extends Area2D

var list = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

func _on_Player_Laser_area_entered(area):

if area.is_in_group("enemies"): #ignore this
	area.take_damage(1). #ignore this
	queue_free() #ignore this


var item

item = list[rand_range(0, list.size())]

print(round(rand_range(0, list.size())))

So, there’s not really a need to have an Array with the values 0, 1, 2, etc. since those are already the indices of the Array. Instead, the values should be the images themselves. So like:

var list = [preload("image0.png"), preload("image1.png"), preload("image2.png")...

Also how do i can show the different images in a random order in the screen when something is destroyed.

func onPlayerLaserarea_entered(area):

if area.is_in_group(“enemies”):
queue_free() #when it destroy to show a ramdom image in a random place

Use the rand_range() function @GDScript — Godot Engine (stable) documentation in English and also the randi() function.

Also you can create a dictionary and use load to reduce the use of memory, but impacting performance. Check what fits better for you and read documentation about preload and load before trying this solution.
