New at cycling a bit confused

So my wife got me a bike couple years ago and I recently started riding it more often, but I was looking at videos trying to get a better idea on bicycles.
So the cassette has 7 rings/gears, yet the grip shifter goes up to 5. Is there a way this gears work?
Excuse my cycling terms lol

    Generally speaking the numbers on a grip shift and the numbers of sprockets on the cassette should be the same.

    Was this a new or a second-hand bike?
