How to use an index to get an item?

0 votes
I have a tuple in python ('A','B','C','D','E'), how do I get which item is under a particular index number?

Example: Say it was given 0, it would return A. Given 2, it would return C. Given 4, it would return E.

What you show, ('A','B','C','D','E'), is not a list, it's a tuple. But the indexing method is same for list and tuple. In either case you append the index in square brackets.

So you can write it as:

thetuple = ('A','B','C','D','E')
print thetuple[0]

prints A, and so forth.
