Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Slices Slice Functions

revers_evens to revers_events on 4th task at slice.py?

I think the name of function should be changed from revers_evens to revers_events on 4th task on slice.py. It is quit more logical for people to take rever_events instead of revers_evens in general even if people have to take the name given on the task of course.

The instructions say to "Return every item in the iterable with an even index...in reverse."

So the name refers to "evens" because they are the items with even index numbers.

An "event" is something that happens at a particular time, which would not describe the purpose of this function.
