# What is the difference between "and" and "or" in Python?

In Python, the **and** and **or** operators are used to perform logical operations and combine conditions. They have the following key differences:

**Logical AND (and):**

- The
**and**operator returns**True**if both operands are**True**. If any operand is**False**, it returns**False**. - It performs short-circuit evaluation, meaning that if the first operand evaluates to
**False**, the second operand is not evaluated.

**Logical OR (or):**

- The
**or**operator returns**True**if at least one of the operands is**True**. If all operands are**False**, it returns**False**. - It also performs short-circuit evaluation. If the first operand evaluates to
**True**, the second operand is not evaluated.

Here's an example to illustrate the difference between **and** and **or**:

```
x = 5
y = 10
# Logical AND (and)
if x > 0 and y < 20:
print("Both conditions are True")
else:
print("At least one condition is False")
# Logical OR (or)
if x > 0 or y > 20:
print("At least one condition is True")
else:
print("Both conditions are False")
```

In this example, the first **if** statement uses the **and** operator. Since both conditions (**x > 0** and **y < 20**) are true, the output will be "Both conditions are True".

The second **if** statement uses the **or** operator. Although the second condition (**y > 20**) is false, the first condition (**x > 0**) is true, so the output will be "At least one condition is True".

It's important to note that the **and** and **or** operators perform short-circuit evaluation. This means that if the outcome of the expression can be determined by evaluating only one operand, the other operand is not evaluated. For example, in the expression **x > 0 and y < 20**, if **x > 0** is **False**, the value of **y < 20** is not evaluated because the overall result of the expression will be **False** regardless.

In summary, use the **and** operator to check if all conditions are true, and use the **or** operator to check if at least one condition is true. The choice between **and** and **or** depends on the specific logic you want to implement.
