Dear fellow colleagues,

The second print statement is my attempt,the first one is the solution,why am l wrong,l am looking to increase by 1 so starting 1 then 3 then 5,please explain

Thank you

Dear fellow colleagues,

Thank you

In the instructions itâ€™s asking you to specify a stride, which is the third (optional) parameter in your slice.`[beg: end: stride]`

A stride of 5 will give you the numbers in your slice skipping by 5, a stride of -1 will give you the numbers backwards (incrementing by -1) etc.

So here my stride is 1 and l am starting with 1 so l skip 1 and get 3 then 5 and so on,this was my logic,please correct me

Thank you

`list = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6]`

`list[0:6:1]`

so if youâ€™re beginning is 0, your end is 6 **exclusive**, and your stride is 1: you will increment by 1, stopping before 6.

[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

`list[0:6:2]`

if youâ€™re beginning is 0, your end is 6 **exclusive**, and your stride is 2: you will increment by 2, stopping before 6.

[0, 2, 4]

`list[0:6:3]`

if youâ€™re beginning is 0, your end is 6 **exclusive**, and your stride is 3: you will increment by 3, stopping before 6.

[0, 3]

`list[::1]`

outputs: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

`list[::2]`

outputs: [0, 2, 4, 6]

`list[::3]`

outputs: [0, 3]

@jagmeetsond589256300 for future reference, itâ€™s always useful to play around in your terminal with python to see what outputs come out. I do it all the time when something isnâ€™t working like I thought it would!
