[-1] is to get the last items in iterable ( An iterable is string, list, tuple or dict ) i.e. If a is "Kartikey" a[-1] is y

-1 finds the last thing in your list and performs an action on it.

You can use strip like this. text = "!!!Hello ,,world..." for i in text: if i.strip('!,.'): #Only strip lets you removing every chars you want from everywhere. print(i,end="") print() for j in text: if j.rstrip('.'): #rstrip lets you removing chars from right side print(j,end="") print() for k in text: if k.lstrip('!'): #lstrip lets you removing chars from left side print(k,end="")
