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
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? :)
