What is the output of following code in Python?

>>>name=’John Smith’
>>>print name[:5] + name[5:]

Ans: Output of this will be
John Smith

This is an example of Slicing. Since we are slicing at the same index, the first name[:5] gives the substring name upto 5th location excluding 5th location. The name[5:] gives the rest of the substring of name from the 5th location. So we get the full name as output.
