Python | Removing Initial word from string

During programming, sometimes, we can have such a problem in which it is required that first word from the string has to be removed. These kind of problems are common and one should be aware about the solution for such problems. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using split()
This task can be performed using the split function which performs a split of words and separates the first word of string with the entire words.

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Removing Initial word from string
# Using split()
  
# initializing string 
test_str = "GeeksforGeeks is best"
  
# printing original string 
print("The original string is : " + test_str)
  
# Using split()
# Removing Initial word from string
res = test_str.split(' ', 1)[1]
  
# printing result 
print("The string after omitting first word is : " + str(res))

Output :

The original string is : GeeksforGeeks is best
The string after omitting first word is : is best

 

Method #2 : Using partition()
The partition function is used to perform this particular task in comparatively lesser internal task as compared to function used in above method.

res = test_str.partition(' ')[2]

The original string is : GeeksforGeeks is best
