Quiz Games and If Statements
How do we tell if a player has beaten the high score? How can we tell if he has run out of lives? How can we tell if she has the key required to open the locked door?
What we need is the if statement. The if statement is also known as a conditional statement. (You can use the term conditional statement when you want to impress everyone how smart you are.)

A program can test for these conditions with the if statement.
