Why my second function is not workin`?

I`m getting odds but it seems it is not the best solution. Pls help!

def first_4(arg):
  arg = list(range(20))
  return arg[1:5]

def odds(arq):
  arq = list(range(30))
  return arq[1::2]

Hi Andrey,

Your odds function is correct with the exception that the first line of code within it is not required, simply removing that will allow task 2 of the challenge to pass.

def odds(arq):
  return arq[1::2]

Happy coding!
