SyntaxError: invalid syntax is a common error in Python that occurs when the interpreter encounters code that violates the language’s syntax rules.
Reason of error:
The error occurs when the interpreter cannot parse the code due to a syntax error, such as a missing colon, mismatched brackets, or an incorrect indentation.
The following code snippet will raise a SyntaxError: invalid syntax:
if x = 5: print("x is 5")
Solution to solve issue:
To fix the error, carefully review the code and look for syntax errors such as missing colons, brackets, or parentheses. Check for typographical errors, such as using the wrong operator or variable names. Make sure that code blocks are indented correctly and consistently. Consider using an IDE or text editor with syntax highlighting and error highlighting to catch errors before running the code.
