Before we start with this week's quiz, here is the answer to Java Quiz 11: Branching Statements

  1. The body of the while loop while(i < 3) is executed for the first time when i = 0. The statement x++; increments the value of x by one. So, x = 0 + 1 = 1.

  2. The body of the for-loop for(int j = 0; j < 4; j++) is executed for the first time when j = 0. The statement x++; increments the value of x by one. So, x = 1 + 1 = 2.

  3. The body of the for-loop for(int j = 0; j < 4; j++) is executed for the second time when j = 1. The statement x++; increments the value of x by one. So, x = 2 + 1 = 3.

  4. The body of the for-loop for(int j = 0; j < 4; j++) is executed for the third time when j = 2. The statement x++; increments the value of x by one. So, x = 3 + 1 = 4.

  5. Now, the value of j is equal to 2. So the statement if(j == 2) returns true.

  6. The return; statement terminates the execution.

The correct answer is: C.

Here is the quiz for today!

What is the output of the following code?

public class MyClass
{
    static int a;

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        if(a == a++)
        {
            a += 3;
        }
        else
        {
            a += 5;
        }
        System.out.print(a++ + ++a + a--);
    }
}


  • A. This program writes "21" to the standard output.

  • B. This program writes "12" to the standard output.

  • C. This program writes "13" to the standard output.

  • D. This program writes "16" to the standard output.

  • E. This program writes "14" to the standard output.

  • F. Runtime error.

  • G. Compilation error.
