What are the Different Types of Comments in Python?

Answer: Comments in Python are mainly of four types:

  1. Single-line comments

Example: 

                    

# List of numbers

numbers = [76, 5, 3, 68, 43, 23, 54, 42, 11]

  1. Multi-line comments

Example:

                    

# Python code is
# easy to understand 
# with comments

  1. String literals as comments

Example:

                    

""I can write a comment for list of numbers like this""
numbers = [76, 5, 3, 68, 43, 23, 54, 42, 11]

 Here, the sentence in the quotes is a string literal that acts as a comment. This is because it is not assigned to a variable.

  1. Python docstrings

Example:

                    

def hello(name):

    """

    This function greets
    the person passed as
    a parameter
    """

    print("Hello, " + name + ". How are you?")

hello('Lisa')

 Output:

In the above code, the lines written between the triple quotes are a docstring, and they explain the hello() function.
