The pass statement basically does nothing. It is used when syntactically a statement is needed, but the program, function or loop should do nothing.
number = 17 if (number < 100): pass else: print("Value is greater than or equal to 100")
The code defines a variable
number with the value of 17. It then uses an
if statement to check if the value of
number is less than 100. If it is, the
pass statement is executed which does nothing and moves on to the next line. If the value of
number is not less than 100, the
else clause is executed, printing the message “Value is greater than or equal to 100”.
