Can't switch have a range as a case just like we do in if?

Like for example we can do if(i > 5 && i < 1)

can we do similiar things in switch?

If yes, then how?

You could use a switch with an enum. This could be an option if you want to reuse the conditions and keep the switch short.
Here is a simplified example. Please note that I do not advocate this pattern, but it might be appropriate in some cases.

Clever idea. I am not sure that is what an enum was intended for, however.
