Today’s exercise is a reminder about the importance of writing good test code. We have two tasks. The first is to extract the next-to-last item from a linked list; for instance, given the list (1 2 3 4 5) the next-to-last item is 4. The second task is to extract the nth-from-last item from a linked last; for instance, given the same list, the second-from-last item is 4. In addition to writing the two functions, you should write test code that exercises the functions thoroughly.

Your task is to write the two functions and test code. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
