In Python, comments are used to explain code and to make it more understandable to other developers who may be reading the code.
To add a comment in Python, you can use the
# symbol. Anything after the
# symbol on a line is considered a comment and is ignored by the interpreter. For example:
# This is a comment in Python print("Hello, World!") # This is also a comment
In the above code snippet, the first line is a comment, and it will not be executed by the interpreter. The second line prints “Hello, World!” to the console, and the third line is also a comment.
It’s important to note that comments should be used sparingly and should only be used to explain code that is not immediately obvious.
Overuse of comments can make code harder to read and maintain.
