Hello, in a list, when using the slice notation, if a higher rank is placed than the new data, the positions of the list are removed 



this is correct, but this



deleted last positions

That's the correct behavior. The elements given by the start and end range are replaced by what's on the right hand side of the assignment. They don't need to be the same length.

>>> list_test=[0,1,2,3,4,5,6]
>>> list_test[2:5] = ['two', 'three']
>>> list_test
[0, 1, 'two', 'three', 5, 6]
