Advanced SlicingAdvanced Slicing

There is a more advanced slicing technique that exists. It allows us to extract all the elements in a specific range with a specific step set.

To set this step, we need to put it as the third number after the second colon as follows: s[start:end:step]. Let's consider a simple example: given string s, and we want to understand what will be extracted after the following code execute: s[1:10:2]. This will extract each second element starting from index 1: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.


Given variable course with the string String Manipulation in Python. Extract all the elements from index 5 to index 12 with step 3.
