The 'basic' Python in 18.04 is still Python 2.7 but you will find more
and more that Python 3 is the preferred version. The Python 3 version
in 18.04 is Python 3.6.

The system is set up so that 'python' (or 'python2') links to python
2.7 and 'python3' links to python 3.6.  

I'd recommend you start using Python 3 for new programs.
