In ""Python"" We need to use colon after if and Elif statements as it is in python Syntx : if (conditions): ## else : ## just like we use curly braces in java script if (conditions){ ## } else { ## } And sorry no u cant use else it instead of Elif as in Python else if is regarded as Elif ,just the short form.
