Live Demo

my_num = 58
if my_num >= 0:
if my_num == 0:
print("The number is equal to zero")
else:
print("It is a positive number")
else:
print("It is a negative number")

Output

It is a positive number

Explanation

• A number is defined.
• It is checked to see if it is 0, otherwise if it is greater than 0, it is shown as positive number.
• If both these conditions don’t hold good, it is determined to be a negative number.
• It is then displayed as output on the console.
