# Difference between If and Switch Statement in C

### Key Contrast:

• In the event that assertion is utilizes a Boolean articulation to execute the capability and can frequently be utilized to really look at various circumstances all at once.
•  The change proclamation utilizes an int articulation to really take a look at each reason to check whether it fulfils the circumstances, in the event that it does the assertion will execute the code.
• Many sprouting architects and programming lovers run over this question when they begin finding out about PC programming, and are frequently paralyzed by it.
• The two assertions appear to be comparative while carrying out roles, yet in the engine they vary from one another in how the execute tasks.
• The assuming assertion and switch proclamation are two distinct capabilities that can be utilized while attempting to execute activities. These two are utilized when one necessities to choose between two other options.
• In the two proclamations the runtime assesses every articulation in a series until it finds one that is valid, so, all in all it executes the code comparing to the case. On the off chance that the articulation is misleading, the explanation movements to the subsequent case gave.

### If-else Statement

• In our everyday lives, we generally settle on things by utilizing if-else. For instance, we should consider what is happening where we really want to think about the quantity of days present in every month.
•  Assuming that the month is both of January, Walk, May, July, August, October and December, the response is 31.
• On the off chance that the month is both of April, June, September and November, the response is 30.
• In the event that the month is a jump year February, the response is 29. In the event that not a jump year February, the response is 28.
• The if-else proclamation permits the developer to do precisely that with their code.
• A condition check is finished. In the event that it is valid, control goes to one block of code and on the off chance that it isn't, then, at that point, control goes to an alternate block of code characterized in else.
•  The else proclamation can either be a solitary explanation or it could be a block of explanations

Syntax:

``````if (condition) {
// Block of code assuming condition valid
} else {
// Block of code
}
``````

Example of if else statement:

``````#include<iostrem>
using namespace std;
int main() {
string month;
cin>>month;
if (month == 'January' || month == 'Walk' || month == 'May' || month == 'July' || month == 'August' || month == 'October' || month == 'December') {
cout << '31';
} else if (month == 'February') {
cout << '28 or 29';
return 0;
}
``````

### Switch Statement

• In the switch articulation, we contrast the condition esteem and numerous cases.
• At the point when there is a coordinate with any of the cases, the block of code relating with that case is executed.
• Each case has a name or a number which is known as its identifier.
• In the event that none of the cases matches the condition, the block of code relating to the default case is executed.
•  Similar instance of finding number of days in every month is finished utilizing switch underneath.

Syntax of switch explanation

``````switch (condition) {
case identifier1:
// code block
break;
case identifier2:
//block of code
break;
case identifier3:
//block of code
break;
default
//block of code
break;
``````

Example of switch statement:

``````switch (month) {
case 1:
case 3:
case 5:
case 7:
case 8:
case 10:
case 12:
cout << "31";
break;
case 2:
cout << "28 or 29";
break;
case 4:
case 6:
case 9:
case 11:
cout << "30";
break;
default:
cout << "Not a legitimate month!";
break
}``````

Explanation:

• In switch, in the event that we don't have a break proclamation, a matching case fall through until it experiences a break explanation, will be printed except for the default case.
•  In the above code, month 1 method January, month 2 methods February, etc. We know that January, Walk, May, July, August, October, December have 31 days while April, June, September and November have 30 days.
• Thus, rather than adding a print explanation after each of these, we can have it just for one of them and add a break proclamation after that.
• We should consider the situation when we need to track down the quantity of days in the ninth month or September.
• We go through the code till we track down case 9. From that point forward, we go to case 11, experience a print proclamation and print 30. Then, at that point, we break out of the switch case.
