# How does jQuery.slice() method work in jQuery?

jQueryWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The slice(start, end) method selects a subset of the matched elements. The following are the parameters of the slice() method:

• start − Where to start the subset. The first element is at zero. Can be negative to start from the end of the selection.
• end − Where to end the subset excluding end element. If unspecified, ends at the end of the selection.

## Example

You can try to run the following code to select a subset of the matched elements using the slice() method:
