Each individual character in a string can be accessed using a technique called indexing

  • The index specifies the character to be accessed in the string and is written in square brackets ([ ]). 
  • The index of the f irst character (from left) in the string is 0 and the last character is n-1 where n is the length of the string.
  •  If we give an index value out of this range then we get an IndexError.  
  • The index must be an integer (positive, zero or negative) .
