In Go language, the string is an immutable chain of arbitrary bytes encoded with UTF-8 encoding. You are allowed to compare strings with each other using two different ways:
1. Using comparison operators: Go string supprot comparasion coperators, i.e, ==, !=, >=, <=, <, >. Here, == and != operator is used to check if the given strings are equal or not. and >=, <=, <, > opeartors are used to find the lexical order. The result of these opertors are of Boolean type, means if the condition satisfy it will return true, otherwise, return false.
Result 1: false Result 2: false Result 3: false Result 4: true Result 5: true Result 6: true Result 7: true Result 8: false

2. Using Compare() method: You can also compare two string using inbuilt function Compare() provide by the string package. This function return integer value after comparing two strings lexicographically. The return values are:
- Return 0, if str1 == str2.
- Return 1, if str1 > str2.
- Return -1, if str1 < str2.
