C if-else Statement

Why if-else Statement?

As We've seen, the if statement allows us to run a block of code if an expression evaluates to true. If the expression evalutes to false, the code is skipped. Thus we can enhance this decision-making process by adding an else statement to an if construction. This lets us run one block of code if an expression is true, and a different block of code if the expression is false.

C if-else Syntax And Definition

  • C uses the keywords if and else  to execute a set of statements either logical condition is true or false.
  • If the condition is true, the statements under the keyword  if   will be executed.
  • If the condition is false, the statements under the keyword else   will be executed.

Realtime Time if else Statement Uses

if else statement in real time

Arduino microcontroller make use C programming, where you can alarm if your sensors output in greater than or lesser than expected value, else blink green light always.

if(x = 123)


x is a variable which get its input from a sensor continuously.

if-else C Program

#include <stdio.h> //header file section
int main()
int age;
printf("Enter your age : ");
if(age > 17)
printf("\nyou are eligible for voting ");
printf("\nSorry, you are not eligible for voting ");
printf("\nThis is normal flow ");
return 0;
  • Enter your age : 16
  • Sorry, you are not eligible for voting
  • This is normal flow


The user input for a variable 'age' is 16, the expression or condition tends to false. So, the else block gets executed.
