In this example, you will learn to get the last element of this list.
Using negative indexing
my_list = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e'] # print the last element print(my_list[-1])
When you use negative indexing, the counting starts from 1 not 0 as shown in the figure below.
If you want the first 1st element, you can use my_list[-5].
