# Python Collections Slice Challenge 3 of 4

Not sure why my first_and_last_4 function passed challenge 2 but is now causing stoppage in challenge 3 which is for the odds function.

slices.py
```def first_4(iterable):
return(iterable[0:4])

def first_and_last_4(iterable):
new_iterable = ((iterable[0:4] + iterable[:-5:-1]))
print(new_iterable)
return(new_iterable)

#first_and_last_4("abcdefghi")

#(["a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h","i"])

def odds(iterable):
odd_index = iterable[1::2]
print(odd_index)
return(odd_index)
#("a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h","i")
odds("abcdefghi")
```
