1. What is Props and why we need Props?

The props is nothing but plain javascript object. Props are immutable so we can not change the data of props in React JS.

As you know if you want to change the value inside the component then you are going to use state variable and render the component based on the state variable. But let’s say if you want to pass data from one component to another component then you have to use props.

You can refer the below link for understanding of state.

You can pass data in React Components by defining custom HTML attributes in which you can assign data with JSX syntax. You can pass data in different formats like string, integer, boolean, object, array, etc and for that you have to use the curly braces.
