- When a part of a conditional expression is redundant and can be removed.
- When a conditional clause can be replaced with a test expression. For example, when a boolean value is assigned or returned inside an if block.
Available when the caret is in an if statement and the surrounding code can be simplified.
Place the caret in a suitable if statement.
