What is the problem with my solution in the 3 challenge
def first_and_last_4(item): first4 = item[:4] last4 = item[-1:-5:-1] x = (first4+last4).sort() return x
def first_4(item): return item[:4] def odds(item): return item[1::2] def first_and_last_4(item): first4 = item[:4] last4 = item[-1:-5:-1] x = (first4+last4).sort() return x

I think your last4 slice should probably use len(item) to get the length of the iterable object that is passed in so it can handle items of different lengths.
