# guys i cant figure it out on the terminal the result is fine, but i can't pass the challenge

guys i cant figure it out on the terminal the result is fine, but i can't pass the challenge

slices.py
```def first_4(li):
return li[0:4]

def first_and_last_4(li):
return li[:4] + li[-4:len(li):1]

def odds(item):
return item[1::2]

def reverse_evens(iterable):
return iterable[-1::-2]
```

But if the last index is odd? You have to use an if statement.

no, i found the answer is return iterable[::2][::-1]

this goes too:

```def reverse_evens(h):
if h[-1]%2 != 0:
print(h[::-2])
else:
print(h[-2::-2])
```

nice though

Great work! This one requires a bit of reasoning about slices that a lot of people don't get right away. Good job working through it.
