How to get the last character from a string in Python

To get the last character from a string, we can use the slice notation [] by passing -1: as an argument.

-1 starts the range from the end of a string.

Here is an example, that gets the last character e from a given string.

str = "This is your house"

lastCharacter = str[-1:]

print (lastCharacter)

Output:

e

Similarly, you can also use the slice notation to get the last n number of characters from a string.

In this below example, we are getting the last 4 characters from a given string.

str = "This is your house"

lastfour = str[-4:]

print (lastFour)

Output:
