Does the problem 1 example need correction?

The problem refers us to last as a Prelude function providing the same functionality. However, last has type [a] -> a which differs from the Lisp example's type [a] -> [a]. Should we revise the example or should we rephrase the reference to last to highlight the difference?

I think the answer to problem 6 is kind of "cheating". I think something like this would be a nice alternate solutions:

isPalindrome        :: Eq (a) => [a] -> Bool
isPalindrome []     = True
isPalindrome [x]    = True
isPalindrome (x:xs) = x == last xs && isPalindrome (init xs)
