What is pass in Python?

  • In Python, a pass statement is defined as a null statement.

  • The pass statement is identical to a comment statement, except that the python compiler interprets it as a functional statement while overlooking the comment statement.

  • The pass statement is usually used when the user is unsure of what code to write and uses it as a substitute and enters pass at that line to avoid an error because the user cannot leave the code empty in loops and in if statements.
