## Python and keyword

and is a keyword (case-sensitive) in python, it is a logical operator actually, it is used to validate more than one conditions. It is similar to Logical AND (&&) operator in C, C++ programming. It requires a minimum of two conditions and returns True – if both conditions are True.

Truth table for "and" keyword/operator

```Condition1	Condition2	(Condition1 and Condition2)
True		True		True
True 		False		False
False		True		False
False 		False		False
```

Syntax of and keyword/operator:

```    condition1 and condition2
```

Example:

```    Input:
a = 10
b = 20

# conditions
print(a>=10 and b>=20)
print(a>10 and b>20)

Output:
True
False
```

### Python examples of and operator

Example1: Take two numbers and test the conditions using and operator

```# python code to demonstrate example of
# and keyword/operator

a = 10
b = 20

# printing return values
print(a>=10 and b>=20)
print(a>10 and b>20)
print(a==10 and b==20)
print(a==10 and b!=20)
```

Output

```True
False
True
False
```

Example 2: Input age and check whether it is teenage or not

```# Input age and check teenage or not

# input
age = int(input("Enter age: "))

# condition
if age>=13 and age<=19:
print("Yes ", age, " is a teenage")
else:
print("No ", age, " is not a teenage")
```

Output

```First run:
Enter age: 17
Yes  17  is a teenage

Second run:
Enter age: 21
No  21  is not a teenage
```

Example 3: Input a character and check whether it is an uppercase alphabet or not

```# input a character and check whether
# it is an uppercase alphabet or not

# input
ch = input("Enter a character: ")

# condition
if ch>='A' and ch<='Z':
print("\'", ch, "\' is an uppercase alphabet")
else:
print("\'", ch, "\' is not an uppercase alphabet")
```

Output

```First run:
Enter a character: I
' I ' is an uppercase alphabet

Second run:
Enter a character: x
' x ' is not an uppercase alphabet
```
