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

Unsure exactly what to do

I have an idea of what to do here, but wasn't sure exactly what to type. Tried things similar to the code below.

first_4 = {}[:3].format()

1 Answer

The challenge wants you to work with splices a bit more. Try running this:

def first_4(iterable):
    return iterable[0:4]
