How to Used in conditional statements, same as else if in Python ?
In Python, the equivalent of
else if is
elif. It is used in conditional statements to check for multiple conditions.
The syntax for
elif is as follows:
if condition1: # code to execute if condition1 is True elif condition2: # code to execute if condition2 is True elif condition3: # code to execute if condition3 is True else: # code to execute if all conditions are False
Here's an example:
x = 10 if x > 10: print("x is greater than 10") elif x < 10: print("x is less than 10") else: print("x is equal to 10")
In this example, the first condition (
x > 10) is False, so the code moves on to the next condition (
x < 10). Since this condition is also False, the code executes the
else block and prints "x is equal to 10".
You can have as many
elif statements as you need to check for different conditions.
