Another way to think about @code{let} is that it is like a @code{setq}

automatically undone when the @code{let} is finished. The setting

The asterisk is for the situation when the buffer is a read-only
buffer---a buffer that cannot be modified. If @code{insert-buffer} is
called on a buffer that is read-only, a message to this effect is
printed in the echo area and the terminal may beep or blink at you;
you will not be permitted to insert anything into current buffer. The
asterisk does not need to be followed by a newline to separate it from
the next argument.

The answers can be found by a quick test. When @code{(% -1 5)} is
evaluated, a negative number is returned; and if @code{nthcdr} is
called with a negative number, it returns the same value as if it were
called with a first argument of zero. This can be seen be evaluating
