I am trying to learn Python3 and have come across Lists. I know that counting begins at 0 and ends at -1
But i am having some difficulty in understanding the following example:

S[6:1:-2] = A B C D E F G H I

Could someone please explain what is going on here please.

That is not valid syntax

Python:
#Creates String
S = 'A B C D E F G H I'

# 6 print the sixth character :1 go back one character : -2 Go back two characters from sixth character
print(S[6:1:-2])

Output
Code:
DCB
