Python Python Sequences Sequence Operations Creating Slices

What is the answer to this question that seems to ask for two answers?

The previous video was about slices and this objective would be written something like this:

student_gpas[2:6]

The other part of the question about renaming the function student_gpas to sliced_gpas stumps me. I have a feeling I was taught this but I cannot recollect where I was taught this.

slices.py
student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
sliced_gpas[2:6]

You are accessing an array that doesn't exist. You want to slice from student_gpas and assign to a variable, sliced_gpas. You are also getting an extra element with [2:6]. It should be [2:5], as end value is inclusive.
