This answer seems correct

I've tested this code and it returns the expected result. I've tried it with both a list and a string. I returns the first 4 items concatenated with the last 4 items as one single variable.

slices.py
def first_and_last_4(x):
    az = x[0:4] + x[-4:]
    return az

Hi there! Your code passes for me. However, it's important to make sure that you did not remove the function you made in the previous step. Removing the code from the step before will cause this to fail.

Here's a quote from the challenge:

Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task.

Let me know if you get it working! :sparkles:
