Python: Nested if Statements

Go to Chapter 13 of A Smarter Way.

Now we’re into multiple nested conditions: if it’s 6:00 AM, and if you’re near a coffee shop, and if you have $5, it would be nice to get a latte.

if time <= 6:00AM:
    if coffee_shop_miles_distance < 1:
        if dollars_on_hand >= 5:
            print("Get a cup of coffee!")
        elif dollars_on_hand < 5:
            print("No coffee for you.")
else:
    print("It's too late for coffee.")

All that’s necessary is to indent consistently. Each sub-block should get its own extra indentation. You can have elif and else at any level, with the usual functionality.
