Make a new variable, var_two, with "e" at index -2. Remember, negative indexes start at the right side of the iterable.

Can someone please explain this question to me?

var_one = ["Supertan", "Batman", "Green Lantern", "Captain Marvel", "Wonder Woman", "T"]

var_two will need to be a collection that can be indexed. That is either a list or a str. The index -2 is from the end of the collection, such as "farmer" or ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e", "f"]. Assign such a value to the variable var_two.
