Can there be an 'if statement in an if statement'?

So this is for a project I’ve been working on for quite a bit now, and there’s been a question in my mind that has been begging to be answered:

“Can there be an if statement inside of an if statement?”

Yep. It would be a great help if somebody answered my question!

Yes there can be. One name for them is nested conditional statements.
In python you might see

if foo:
    if bar:
         baz()

In C and C-family languages you would see something like:

if (foo)
{
    if (bar)
    {
         baz();
    }
}

what about javascript?

Yes, javascript is in the C-family syntax so the second example would work. (the bracketing convention might not be the same but the code snippet would run in js)
