In Python you can define a series of conditionals using
if for the first one,
elif for the rest, up until the final (optional)
else for anything not caught by the other conditionals.
number = 5 if number > 2: print("Number is bigger than 2.") elif number < 2: # Optional clause (you can have multiple elifs) print("Number is smaller than 2.") else: # Optional clause (you can only have one else) print("Number is 2.")
Number is bigger than 2
else if instead of
elif will trigger a syntax error and is not allowed.
