reverse_evens in slice-functions: Does anyone know why I'm stuck?

Does anyone know why I'm stuck? This is Challenge Task 4 of 4

If I do this, it works just fine in the console:

x=[1,2,3,4,5] x[::-2] x[-1::-2] # This returns an equivalent answer [5,3,1] # Example answer

Though the question is asking for reverse_evens, it's asking for elements in the even-numbered indices (which happen to be odd numbers in the example). I say this because I was wondering if my interpretation of the question is incorrect -- or is the example incorrect?

Thanks!

```def first_4(iterable):
return iterable[:4]

def first_and_last_4(iterable):
return iterable[:4] + iterable[-4:]

def odds(iterable):
return iterable[1::2]

def reverse_evens(iterable):
return iterable[::-2]
