Python Code Example: if else statement on boolean expressions

This code defines three variables: a, b, and c, and assigns values to each of them (True, False, and True, respectively).

The code then evaluates an expression using the or and and operators: a or b and c. The expression is then used as the condition for an if statement.

In this expression, the and operator has higher precedence than the or operator, so the expression b and c is evaluated first. Since b is False and c is True, the result of the and operation is False.

Next, the or operation is performed between a (True) and the result of the and operation (False). Since True or False is True, the overall expression is True.

As a result, the code in the if block (print("True")) is executed, and the message “True” is printed.

If the values of a, b, and c were different, the overall expression could have been False, in which case the code in the else block (print("False")) would have been executed, and the message “False” would have been printed.

a, b, c = True, False, True

if a or b and c:

Logical operators have different priorities and therefore are executed at different times.

The order is as follows:
Logical complements (not) are executed first,
logical conjunctions (and) are executed next,
and logical disjunctions (or) are executed at the end.
