Bummer: Whoops, looks like your slice contains incorrect values. Remember that slices are exclusive of the stop value.

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0] sliced_gpas = student_gpas[3:6] print(sliced_gpas)

Remember that the workspace has no idea what the objective is. Take a closer look at which items are being selected by the slice. Since index numbers start at 0, the slice values will need to be reduced to select the correct items.

sliced_gpas = student_gpas[2:5]
