You can use both " and ' to write a string in Python, a double ' ('') will be invalid.

If you use ", the syntax for your case would be

print("I am jack's raging bile duct")

But if you use ', you may need to escape the apostrophe as follows:

print('I am jack\'s raging bile duct')

In general, if you use ", and your string has also ", you will need to escape every " in your string, except the one that closes, same happens with '.

To know more about this you can have a look at the following video tutorial:-
