How to use a ternary operator in JavaScript without else or empty? Is it possible?

A ternary operation is called ternary because it takes 3 arguments, if it takes 2 it is a binary operation.

It’s an expression returning a value. If you omit the else you would have an undefined situation where the expression would not return a value.

You can use an if statement.

Although it’s safer to have braces if you need to add more than one statement in the future:

if(condition) { x = true; }
