Write a function, every-second-element, that returns every second element of a list. As examples
(every-second-element '(a b c)) => (a c)
(every-second-element '(a b c d)) => (a c)
It is recommended that you formulate a recursive solution. Be sure to consider the basis case(s) carefully.
It is often worthwhile to go for a more general solution than actually needed. Sometimes, in fact, the general solution is simpler than one of the more specialized solutions. Discuss possible generalizations of every-second-element, and implement the one you find most appropriate.
