   </head>
   
   <body>
      <script type = "text/javascript">
         var City = Backbone.Model.extend();

         //The variable "Cities" contains the elements which are to be displayed when 'slice()' method is called
         var Cities = ['NewYork', 'Sydney', 'Durban', 'Lancashire', 'Kent'];

         //The collection instance "cities" uses the "Cities" variable to represent the model elements in 
         //the collection
         var cities = new Backbone.Collection (Cities, {
            model:City
         });

         //The slice(1,4) method begins the element extraction at index "1" and ends the extraction of elements 
         //up to the index "4"
         var mycity = Cities.slice(1,4);

         //The 'length' property specifies the total number of sliced elements between 1 and 4
         document.write("Number of Cities:", +mycity.length);
         document.write("<br>");
         document.write(JSON.stringify(mycity));
