A mock test which is cretaed by Marcus Green had asked
What will be output by the following code?
public class MyFor{
public static void main(String argv[]){
int i;
int j;
for (i=1;i <3;i++)
for(j=1; j<3; j++) {
if (j==2)
continue outer;
System.out.println("Value for i=" + i + " Value for j=" +j);

According to me answer will be "Value for i =1
Value for j=1 " , but he had answered "Value for i =1 value for j=1 And Value for i =2 , Value for j=1".

I m unable to understand that how can be value of j is remain unchanged while i's value is increasing.
I am not getting it, how it is working?
Pls. anyone can suggest me I 'll be very gratefull to them.
