Q2 : What is Python Interpreter ?

A: If your recipe is written in Python, the Python interpreter is the program that reads what is in the recipe and translates it into instructions for your computer to follow.

Q3: What is Syntax and Semantics?

A: When writing code, using correct syntax is very important. Even a small typo, like a missing parentheses or an extra comma, can cause a syntax error and the code won’t execute at all.

If your syntax is correct, but the script has unexpected behavior or output, this may be due to a semantic problem. Syntax is the rules of how code is constructed, while semantics are the overall effect the code has.

It is possible to have syntactically correct code that runs successfully, but doesn’t do what we want it to do.
