Hello, I’m stuck on instruction 4 on the review page of working with lists.
This is my code:

inventory = [“twin bed”, “twin bed”, “headboard”, “queen bed”, “king bed”, “dresser”, “dresser”, “table”, “table”, “nightstand”, “nightstand”, “king bed”, “king bed”, “twin bed”, “twin bed”, “sheets”, “sheets”, “pillow”, “pillow”]

inventory_len = len(inventory) #answer to instruction 1

first = inventory.pop(0) #answer to instruction 2
last = inventory.pop(-1) #answer to instruction 4

This is instruction 4: Select items from the inventory starting at index 2 and up to, but not including, index 6.

Save your answer to a variable called inventory_2_6.

I’m thinking this is the correct code: inventory_2_6 = inventory[2:6].

I get the message: Value for inventory_2_6 did not match the expected value.

I have no clue what i’m doing wrong, could someone help me?


I’m sorry. I’ll make sure i’ll post in the correct thread in the future.

The post did help me solve my problem, thank you!
