Am i missing something with this
My exercise is returning the expected output but the check seems to be failing. Please help with what may be missing
def first_4(listA): return listA[:4] def first_and_last_4(listB): return listB[:4] + listB[-4:] def odds(listC): return listC[1::2] def reverse_evens(listD): listD= listD[::-1] return(listD[::2])

You're close, and your function should work already half of the time, based on the size of the list.
To make sure it works in all cases, try getting the even indexed items first, and then reversing them.
Thanks. I did not run through all the possible cases for the size of the list.
