How to Print a Specific Line Without Using Pattern Matching

Is there a way to print a specific row (without using pattern matching) like we use to print column ($1, $2, $3 etc)?

My Text file:

Hi
How are you?
I am from California.

Is there any special characters to achieve this like $1, $2, $3 etc...?


Using sed:

~$ sed -n '3p' myfile
I am from California.

Using awk

~$ awk 'NR==3' myfile
I am from California.


If the file is large, you should exit when the line is found:

Using sed:

~$ sed -n '3{p;q}' myfile
I am from California.

Using awk

~$ awk 'NR==3{print;exit}' myfile
I am from California.
