A class is a user-defined blueprint or prototype from which objects are created. Class can be considered as a user-defined data type. Generally, a class contains data members known as attributes of the class and member functions that are used to modify the attributes of the class. But have you ever wondered how to define an empty class i.e a class without members and member functions?
In Python, if we write something like the following, it would raise a
File "gfg.py", line 5 ^ SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing
In Python, to write an empty class
pass statement is used.
pass is a special statement in Python that does nothing. It only works as a dummy statement. However, objects of an empty class can also be created.

Python also allows us to set the attributes of an object of an empty class. We can also set different attributes for different objects. See the following example for better understanding.
obj1 Details: Name: Nikhil Office: GeeksforGeeks obj2 Details: Name: Abhinav Office: GeeksforGeeks Phone: 1234567889
Traceback (most recent call last): File "gfg.py", line 34, in
print("Phone:", obj1.phone) AttributeError: 'Employee' object has no attribute 'phone'
