What is the result?

x = 0
x = 1
x = 2
x = 3
x = 4
Compilation fails

i answered x = 2. but the correct answer is x=4
i answered x=2, bcos b=false sets the value of b to false.so,doesnt the if loop return true?
plz explain.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4<br /> <br />Thanks in advance!<br />Jayashree.

"b=false sets the value of b to false"
