e
e
k
s

e
e
k
s

Explanation : Vertical String converted to Horizontal.

Method #1 : [Horizontal to Vertical] using loop + “\n”

In this, we add newline character to after each character so that each element gets rendered at next line.

print("The original string is : " + str(test_str))
  
# using loop to add "\n" after each character 
res = ''
for ele in test_str:
    res  += ele + "\n" 
      
# printing result 
print("The converted string : " + str(res))

Method #2 : [Vertical to Horizontal] using replace() + “\n”

In this, we perform the task of  conversion by removing “\n” by replacement by empty string.
