4

The ellipsis operator looks at the previous two numbers to guess the step.

```
sage: [2, 4 .. 10]
[2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
```

0

using list comprehension:

```
sage: [i for i in [1..10] if i%2==0]
[2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
```

see more alternatives in the Programming in Python and Sage Thematic Tutorial.

I knew that. I was wondering if same can be done with [1..10]?
