Break Statement in Python

Updated: May 18


The break statement is used to terminate the loop when a certain condition is gathering. The break statement is usually used inside a loop along with a if statement so that when a exacting condition returns true, the break statement is encountered and the loop terminates.

Example:

Program to display all the elements before number 70
