    A and B can be simplified with an idiom that C (which is the language that Python is written in) uses. False is defined as 0, NULL, nil, C doesn't have a boolean type so integers are used. True is defined as not false, which in binary would be 1, but for numbers it means anything non-zero is true. C could use a complex conditional, testing both conditions and using a logical operator (and, or) in one line. b doesn't need to be declared first. D I don't know a simpler way to do that. These all would benefit from the ternary operator, but Python doesn't have that.
