What's wrong with my code (slices)?

I'm starting my slice at the third element and stopping at the sixth. The problem asks to get the third and fifth elements, so I step 2 every time. Shouldn't this end up with the third and fifth element?

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
sliced_gpas = student_gpas[2:5:2]

The task asks you to provide a list that includes the 3rd through the 5th elements. Not just the 3rd and 5th elements.
