OK next one, why, in the loop num = 5 if num > 2: print(num) num -= 1 print(num) does it only print out 5,4 (and not 3) ?

    because there is no iteration. u say that num=5 ... then u control if 5>2 (it is)... u do the if block where u print the num that is currently 5 and then u make num-1...that is 4. u exit the if statement and print the new num that is 4. then your done. no iteration
