Hi! I’m still new to the site and I don’t know how to properly navigate through the forum. I’m very sorry if this has been answered already. I was just wondering if anyone can explain to me how this code works? Thank you!

def middle_element(lst):

if len(lst) % 2 == 0:

sum = lst[int(len(lst)/2)] + lst[int(len(lst)/2) - 1]

return sum / 2

else:

return lst[int(len(lst)/2)]

print(middle_element([5, 2, -10, -4, 4, 5]))

**Instruction: create a function called middle_element that has one parameter named lst .**

**If there are an odd number of elements in lst , the function should return the middle element. If there are an even number of elements, the function should return the average of the middle two elements.**
