Slicing a list
why does week_name[-1:-5] returns [ ]

The pointer that traverses the list when slicing or striding only moves from left to right, so when you say week_name[-1:-5], the interpreter tries to start from -1 (sun) and move towards the right to fetch more elements, however there are no more elements to the right of -1 hence it returns an empty list
