In the statement showing how variable names should be formulated, add the following rules.
In Python, variable names:

  • cannot be a python keyword

Ex: Say you have a minimum weight that people should pass to be considered for blood
donation, you can’t have a variable called pass since this is a python keyword.

  • can start with an underscore

Ex: _weight

  • Should be descriptive

Your variable name should tell others what it stores e.g. the weight variable will most likely
be associated with weight unlike w which could be; words, waffles, wagon etc.
