Conditional statements in Python allow developers to execute a specific set of actions based on specific conditions. This tutorial aims to provide an introduction to conditional statements in Python programming language. The tutorial will walk you through the basics of conditional statements, explain their use cases, and provide practical examples to help you better understand how to use them in your Python coding projects.

What are conditional statements :

  • Conditional statements are a special construct in any programming language.
  • These statements allow the coder to execute different code blocks depending on the truth value of a logical condition.
  • If the logical condition evaluates to True one code block is executed and if it evaluates to False another code block is evaluated.
  • There can be several code blocks chained together depending upon the number of conditions.
  • Basic syntax of a conditional statement is :

if logical_condition_is_true :
	# code block 1
	# code block 2
