alphabet is a string. You can index into it using brackets and an index.

print("Winning"[0])
# W

Use the index and shift added together as the index.

print("Winning"[4 + 2])
# g

Use this format variable = string[var1 + var2]

To assign a character from the string alphabet at the position index + shift to the variable shifted
