Self-similar integer sequences are certain sequences that can be reproduced by extracting a portion of the existing sequence. See the OEIS page for more information.
In this problem, you are to check if the sequence is self-similar by every other pair of terms. The problem set assumes that you start with the first element pair and then take every other element pair thereafter of the original sequence, and compare that result to the first half of the original sequence. The function should return true if the extracted sequence is equal to the first half of the original sequence.
Since seq_every_other_pair = seq_orig_first_half, the set is self-similar.
