elif statement is used to check multiple conditions. When the condition is met, the rest is ignored.
The syntax for
elif statement is as follows.
if [condition 1 is true]: do something elif [condition 2 is true]: do something elif [condition 3 is true]: do something else: do something else if all conditions are false
As an example, we modify the previous code into something like is shown below.
option_one = input('Type a number from 1 to 3 here: ') if option_one == 1: print('number 1 is your option') elif option_one == 2: print('number 2 is your option') elif option_one == 3: print('number 3 is your option') else: print('that is not a good option')
The same as before, when the code is run an input is asking the user to type in a number. If the user types in a number between 1 and 3 the message will be printed on the screen accordingly. If the user types a number other than 1, 2, or, 3 then the message from
else statement will be displayed.
