Hi Karthik , well it prints 0 because it never enter the for loop. this is your for statement: for (int i = 0, j = 10; total > 30; ++i, --j)
it states that i and j should start from 0, after every iteration i should increment with 1 and j should decrement with 1 but most importantly it specifies that loop should continue to run while value of total is greater then 0 now. before this statement you have written: int total = 0;
as the condition is already false. it never enters the for loop.
