JavaScript else Statement (Live Playground)

In this tutorial, we will explore the else statement, and learn how to use it in our code.

else Statement

The else statement is a conditional statement which used to make decisions in your code based on specific conditions.

The else statement is used to execute a block of code if the condition in the preceding if statement is false.


const a = 4;

if (a > 5) {
console.log('a is greater than 5');
} else {
console.log('a is not greater than 5');

In the example above, the output is 'a is not greater than 5' because the condition a > 5 is false.
