CsharpProgrammingServer Side Programming

Decision making statements requires the programmer to specify one or more conditions to be evaluated or tested by the program, along with a statement or statements to be executed if the condition is determined to be true, and optionally, other statements to be executed if the condition is determined to be false.

The following are the types of decision making statements −

 Live Demo

using System;

namespace Demo {
   class Program {
      static void Main(string[] args) {
         int a = 50;

         if (a < 10) {
            Console.WriteLine("a is less than 10");
         } else {
            Console.WriteLine("a is not less than 10");
         Console.WriteLine("a = {0}", a);


a is not less than 10
a = 50
