What is A Statement In Computer Programming

In computer programming a statement is the smallest set of instructions that can able to operate independently . A statement element carried a specific action and deploy it when it is used .

Basic Examples Of Statments

If , while and for are the basic examples of statements . All of three are the statements . Suppose developer use “if” statement in his programming code . if statement check the condition , if condition is match then code is executed .

Example

var a =10;
if( a==10){
execute code;
};

Working

In this code if statement test the condition that variable value is equal to 10 . If condition is right the code is under { }curly braces is executed . Now in this code if statement carry a complete function and do some operations

  1. Analyze or compare the value
  2. Make decision that comparison is matched with  condition or not
  3. Execute the code or do action
