How to get the first n characters of a string in C#

Where 0 is the start index, n is the number of characters we need to get from the string.
Here is an example, that gets the first 3 characters from a
string name = "pearson"; string firstThree = name.Substring(0,3); Console.WriteLine(firstThree);
In the example above, we have passed
0, 3 as arguments to the
Substring() method. So it starts the extraction at index position
0 and extracts before the index
