🤔Im still confused about this part 👉 last = len(list)- 1.
If we deduct 1, we get the 3rd position which is the number 4 (i was thinking why we don't add 1 instead of deducting 1. Please Help!

Since index values begin at 0 instead of 1, the highest possible index (and the index of the last item) is one less than the number of items in the list.
