Because with "nums [3]=nums [1]" you make the third number ( which, as we know, it's actually the forth since you have to start counting from 0, not 1) , in this case 4, turn into the first number (actually the second) , which is 2.

after executing nums[3] =nums[1], the list is changed to [1,2,3,2,5]. since index starts from 0.

List index 3 has value of 4 and is replaced by value of index 1 which is 2. Now position 3 has value of 2, copied from index 1. Hope you understood it.

Cuz nums[0]=1,nums[1]=2,nums[2]=3,nums[3]=4,nums[4]=5.

You replaced the 4 with a 2, but the 2 itself remained unchanged.
