So let me get this right. If i pass nil value as the condition in the if statement, the if statement recognises the condition as the BOOL value false?

Not quite, nil is when something is equal to nothing, look at the code below:
if text == nil NSLog(@"Return is nil")
text in the code above has nothing in it, ie. no content; the BOOL (Boolean) value of false means something is not true, like if I said text had a length of 100. Sorry if this doesn't make sense, it's hard to explain
