In this article, we would like to show you how to access list items in Python.

Quick solution:

my_list = ['A', 'B', 'C']

print(my_list[0])   # A
print(my_list[-3])  # A

 

1. Positive indexing

In this example, we use positive indexing to access list items by refering to the specific index number. We start from index 0 that refers to the first item.

my_list = ['A', 'B', 'C']

print(my_list[0])  # A
print(my_list[1])  # B
print(my_list[2])  # C

Output:

A
B
C

2. Negative indexing

In this example, we use negative indexing to access list items by refering to the specific index number. We start from index -1 that refers to the list item.

my_list = ['A', 'B', 'C']

print(my_list[-1])  # C
print(my_list[-2])  # B
print(my_list[-3])  # A

Output:

C
B
A
