Python Slicing Exercises

Let’s check out some exercises that will help you understand and master how Python’s Slice Notions, Slicing and Advanced Slicing works.

Exercise 17-a

Slice the word until first "a". (Tosc)


[start:stop] notation can be used to slice a Python string.

Just keep in mind that in [start:stop] notation, stop value won’t be included. So, you need to type the index of the last value you’d like to include +1.

ans_1 = wrd[0:4]

or

ans_1 = wrd[:4]

or

ans_1 = wrd[:4:1]

Exercise 17-b

Slice the word so that you get "cana".


[start:stop] notation can be used to slice a Python string.

Just keep in mind that in [start:stop] notation, stop value won’t be included. So, you need to type the index of the last value you’d like to include +1.

ans_1 = wrd[3:]

or

ans_1 = wrd[3::1]
