Python Why doesn't this output "three" as well?

I am wondering why this only outputs "one" and "two" but not three since elif statements condition is met.

Thank you in advance :)

A question on my course:
x = 1
y = 1.0
z = "1"

if x == y:
    print("one")
if y == int(z):
    print("two")
elif x == y:
    print("three")
else:
    print("four")

Since the second if condition is true, the following "elif" or "else" conditions will be ignored.
Chained if statements (if -> elif -> elif -> elif -> else) executes when the statement/block of the first true condition and ignores the rest.
