Please look at the the following code:

The answer is 1 2 1. The first part is clear i.e., i value is printed before incrementing and then incremented value is stored in i and this value is printed in second print statement. The second part is not clear for me. I thought j value would be 2 as the print statement given after incrementing. Can someone explain how does the value of j becomes 1?
