num == 7

num = 7 if num > 3: print("3") if num < 5: print("5") if num ==7: print("7") At the end of this code, "if num ==7", I'm not sure I understand why this is false, do you substitute the "num" with 7 from the top here? Could someone please explain? Thank you!

Hello Xi Wang, you just need to corrext the indentation in your code: the 'if' statements should be aligned vertically for this code to execute as intended eg: if num>3: print("3') if num<5: print("5") if num==7: print("7")

num = 7 if num > 3: #the condition is true and it prints "3" print("3") if num < 5: #the condition is false. so it doesn't print "5" print("5") if num ==7: print("7") # In here, even if the condition is True since the above condition is false (num < 5). Python does not move on and check for the last condition. it terminates the code in the second condition. so it only prints "3"

if num > 3 -> true if num < 5 -> false -> the rest of the code belongs to this block so it will not be executed.

num = 7 Is <num> greater than 3? yes Print 3 Is <num> less than 5? No Any statement or block of statements following the above condition will not be processed because the evaluation results in false (<num> is 7 and it is not less than 5).

Probably anything that happens after false will block another statement depending from the code. A little advice from a learner. PS: I'm not sure if this advice is 100% correct. Edit: Maybe your indentions are wrong. Try checking and editing them again. Then it might work.

Buddy here you are using ladder of if-else.... Lets, check step-wise... num = 7 if num > 3: #since num=7 it is true print("3") if num < 5: #since num=7 it is false print("5") if num ==7: #this won't get chance print("7")

First evaluate if num is greater than 3 and that's true then evaluate if num is lower than 5 that's false so the next if statements inside this one will not be executed.
