I am in else

Unlike other programming languages, you can use else conditional statement with for loop in python.

In the first code snippet, we are printing the message 'I am in else' when the for loop is completed. If you are using the 'break' keyword inside for loop and it executes inside the for loop then the else conditional statement will not be executed.
