Ammar Askar added the comment:
What this line is trying to say is that the slice index is inclusive for the start parameter and exclusive for the end parameter.
In mathematical/interval notation this would look like [start, end)
As a quick example look at the word "Python"
If you do word[:2], the result is 'Py', notice how the t is excluded.
