What are comments in Python?



Comments are used to add a note, remark or explanation in the source code. They are not executed by the interpreter. 

  • Comments can be used to explain Python code.
  • Comments can be used to make the code more readable.
  • Comments can be used to prevent execution when testing code.

A comment starts with # (hash sign) . Everything following the # till the end of that line is treated as a comment.


  • #This is a comment
  • #print(“Hello world”)
