Comments allow developers to document their code and make it easier to understand for other developers and maintainers.
Comments can also be used to temporarily disable code without actually deleting it.
Exploring the Different Types of Comments
Single-line comments begin with a double forward slash (//) and are used to comment out a single line of code.
// like this
Multi-line comments begin with a forward slash and asterisk (/*) and end with an asterisk and a forward slash (*/). This type of comment is used to comment out a block of code.

Comments can also be used to describe code, enabling developers to communicate the purpose of the code without disrupting its functionality. When used correctly, comments can improve readability and make it easier for developers to maintain and update code.
