#171 – if/else Statement Can Have One or More Statements in Body

The if/else statement can be used to execute a single statement in both the if and the else part, or to execute a block of statements.  A block of statements can be executed if curly braces ({, }) are used.

            // Example 1 - block of statements
            if (age >= 50)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Hey, you should consider joining AARP!");
                DisplayDetailsOfAARPMembership();
            }
            else
            {
                Console.WriteLine("You're still a young pup");
                DisplayInfoAboutVideoGames();
            }

            // Example 2 - single statements
            if (airfare < 850.00)
                BookTickets();
            else
                PlanARoadTrip();

            // Example 3 - mixed
            if (married)
            {
                KeepPlaceClean();
                RaiseKids();
                LearnInterpersonalSkills();
            }
            else
                PlayVideoGames();
