The features of Python are:

4) Extensibility

5) Runs on different platforms

B: Basic programming of python language

Python is really easy to learn. You need to learn the basic syntax of the language before starting to write programs in Python. The Python language has its own style which you must follow while writing code.

The basic rules are mentioned below:

Indentation plays an important role in Python. For example, if you want to define a function which consists of two lines of code, then you need to indent the second line by four spaces. If you do not follow this rule then you will get an error message while executing the program. The following image shows how the code should look like when properly indented.

You can open an interactive Python interpreter by typing "python" on the command prompt. It has two modes - "Interactive Mode" and "Script Mode".
