The continue statement, also borrowed from C,It is used to continue the loop with the next iteration of the loop.

**Example : continue statement in for loop**

```
# example of continue statement
for i in range(1, 4):
print("First statement")
print("Second Statement")
print("value of i is " + str(i))
if (i == 2):
print("going to skit the below line for this iteration")
continue
print("Third Statement")
print("Fourth Statement")
print("Fifth Statement")
print("=============================")
```

First statement Second Statement value of i is 1 Third Statement Fourth Statement Fifth Statement ============================= First statement Second Statement value of i is 2 going to skit the below line for this iteration First statement Second Statement value of i is 3 Third Statement Fourth Statement Fifth Statement =============================

continue statement skip the current iteration and continue with next one

**Another simple example of continue statement**

```
for num in range(2, 10):
if num % 2 == 0:
print("Found an even number", num)
continue
print("Found a number", num)
```

Found an even number 2 Found a number 3 Found an even number 4 Found a number 5 Found an even number 6 Found a number 7 Found an even number 8 Found a number 9
