Using Python Conditional Expressions
We need to constantly evaluate a condition of some kind to determine what action to take or what value to assign to a variable we'll use later in our program. In the situation where we only have an
if and an

In this hands-on lab, we'll be refactoring an existing script by rewriting the simple conditional statements as conditional expressions.
The following is a prerequisite for feeling comfortable completing this lab:
