We learned how to use Python’s if statements in the last tutorial. We shall study another control phrase, “if..else,” in this manual.
When we want to run a specific block of Python code only when a specific condition is true, we use if statements. If..else statements are essentially an extension of the “if” statement that allow us to execute alternative sets of statements depending on whether a given condition is true or false. The if..else statement can be used to achieve tasks like printing “even number” when the number is even and “odd number” when the number is not even.
Python’s if..else statement syntax
if condition: block_of_code_1 else: block_of_code_2
block_of_code_1: This would execute if the given condition is true
block_of_code_2: This would execute if the given condition is false
Python if-else example
num = 22 if num % 2 == 0: print("Even Number") else: print("Odd Number")
