Python – Create String using Double Quotes

Python – Create a string using double quotes

To create a string using double quotes in Python, enclose the required string value or sequence of characters in double quotes.

For example, consider the following string created using double quotes.

"hello world"

We can assign this string value to a variable, say x, as shown in the following.

x = "hello world"

We can use the string literal in an expression, say concatenation of two strings.

"hello world" + "apple"

Since we defined the string using double quotes, if we would like to use a double quote inside this string, we must escape the double quote using backslash character.

"sample\" text"

Python Example to create a string using double quotes
