In this tutorial, we will learn how to get the nth character of a string in Python.
In Python, strings are the sequence of characters, where the index of the first character is
0, the second character is
1, and the third character is
To access the nth character of a string in Python, we can use the built-in Square Brackets Notation
 by passing the nth index as an argument.
Here is an example, that gets the first character
D from the following string:
place = "Denmark" firstCharacter = place print(firstCharacter)
We can access the second and third characters of a string like this:
secondCharacter = place // e thirdCharacter = place // n
Similarly, we can also access the characters from the end of the string using the negative index in Python.
-1 is used to access the last character from the end of a string, -2 is used to access second character from the end of a string, etc.
Here is an example:
place = "Denmark" lastCharacter = place[-1] // k
