Returning char from a string by index
I am using a random number generator to choose a number between 0 and the length of the string minus one. Then I am supposed to return the character in that index, but my code seems to have an error. Does anyone know what it is?
# EXAMPLE # random_item("Treehouse") # The randomly selected number is 4. # The return value would be "h" import random def random_item(word = "Treehouse"): num = random.randint(0,len(word)-1) return word[num]
