Here's a hint: This task can be done with a single slice.

Just think about how you might use the slice parameters of start, stop and step. If you set them right, the slice will give you only every other value starting with the first odd numbered index.

Bonus hint: When you get to #4, one way to solve it involves two slices. :wink:
