# Can we use break statement in a Python if clause?

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Python's break keyword is used as decision control statement. It causes the remaining iterations to be abandoned and control of execution goes to next statement after the end of loop. Invariably it is executed conditionally and appears inside if block within a loop.

while expr==True:
stmt1
stmt2
if expr2==True:
break
stmt3
stmt4

However it can't be used in an if block if it is not a part of loop.
