To get the first character from a string, we can use the slice notation
 by passing
:1 as an argument.
:1starts the range from the beginning to the first character of a string.
Here is an example, that gets the first character
M from a given string.
str = "Movie Theater" firstCharacter = str[:1] print (firstCharacter)
Similarly, you can also use the slice notation to get the first
n number of characters from a string.
In this below example, we are getting the first 2 characters from a given string.
str = "This is your house" firstTwo = str[:2] print (firstTwo)
