help here!

challenge: Amazing! I know that one can be a little tricky!

OK, try this one on for size: create a new function named odds that returns every item with an odd index in a provided iterable. For example, it would return the items at index 1, 3, and so on.

my code: [alt text]https://w.trhou.se/9syn8ehjij

slices.py
my_list = list(range(1,21))
def first_4(the_list):
    return the_list[:4:]
print(first_4(my_list)) 

def first_and_last_4(my_list):
    first_4 = my_list[:4:]
    last_4 = my_list[-4::]
    return first_4 + last_4 

def odds(only_odds):
    return only_odds[0::2]
print(odds(my_list))

Zero isn't an odd number. You want "the items at index 1, 3, and so on." That make sense? :)
