In C++, program statements are individual instructions or commands that make up a program. They represent actions or operations to be performed by the computer. Program statements are written in the C++ programming language and executed sequentially.

Here are some common types of program statements in C++:

Expression Statements: Expression statements perform operations or calculations and can include assignments, function calls, and other expressions.

Control Flow Statements: Control flow statements determine the order of execution and control the flow of the program. They include conditional statements (if, else, switch), loop statements (for, while, do-while), and jump statements (break, continue, return, goto).

Declaration Statements: Declaration statements are used to introduce and define variables, constants, and other entities. They specify the type and name of the entity being declared.

Input/Output Statements: Input/output (I/O) statements are used to interact with the user or perform input and output operations. They involve using objects like cin and cout from the iostream library.

Compound Statements: Compound statements, also known as block statements, group multiple statements together. They are enclosed within braces {} and allow the execution of multiple statements as a single unit. They are commonly used with control flow statements and function bodies.
