What is a JavaScript statement?

In JavaScript, a statement is a single instruction that tells the browser what to do. Statements can be grouped together in blocks, which are enclosed in curly braces {}.

There are many different types of JavaScript statements, including:

  • Assignment statements: Assign a value to a variable.
  • Arithmetic statements: Perform mathematical operations on values.
  • Comparison statements: Compare two values and return a Boolean value.
  • Logical statements: Combine Boolean values using logical operators.
  • Control flow statements: Change the flow of execution of the program.
  • Function statements: Define a function.
  • Object statements: Create an object.
  • Array statements: Create an array.
  • String statements: Create a string.
  • Comment statements: Provide comments in your code.

Statements are executed in the order they appear in the code. If a statement contains an error, the browser will stop executing the code and display an error message.

Here is an example of a JavaScript statement:

Code snippet

var myVar = 10;

This statement assigns the value 10 to the variable myVar.

Here is an example of a JavaScript block:

Code snippet

  var myVar = 10;

This block of code assigns the value 10 to the variable myVar and then logs the value of myVar to the console.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
