This command remove all the elements of the sorted set value, whose ranks are between start and stop arguments.

Negative numbers can also be used to provide an offset starting from the highest score element of the sorted set value, here -1 means the highest score element, -2 means second highest score element and so on.

An error is returned, if the key exists but value stored at the key is not of sorted set datatype.
