Python – Create String using Single Quotes

Python – Create a string using single quotes

To create or define a string in Python using single quotes, enclose the string value or literal in single quotes.

'hello world'

We can assign this string value to a variable.

x = 'hello world'

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

x = 'hello world' + 'apple'

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

'user\'s world'
