Python: Fetch first 10 results from a list

Is there a way we can fetch first 10 results from a list. Something like this maybe:

list = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20]

list.fetch(10)


?

Answer
list[:10]

will give you the first 10 elements of this list using slicing.

However, note, it's best not to use list as a variable identifier as it's already used by Python: list()
