# Code Inspection: Simplify conditional ternary expression

If your ternary expression (an expression of the form `a ? b: c`

) contains a boolean constant as either `b`

or `c`

, it can be converted to a much simpler expression. For example, this

```
public bool CanVote
{
get { return myAge >= 16 ? isCitizen : false; }
}
```

can be simplified to this:

```
public bool CanVote
{
get { return myAge >= 16 && isCitizen; }
}
```
