public class TestClass
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
int x = 0;
labelA: for (int i=10; i<0; i--)
{
int j = 0;
labelB:
while (j < 10)
{
if (j > i) break labelB;
if (i == j)
{
x++;
continue labelA;
}
j++;
}
x--;
}
System.out.println(x);
}
}
Options:
1)It will not compile
2)It will go infinite loop when run
3)The program will write 10 to the standard output
4)The program will write 0 to the standard output
5)None of the above..
Answer: 4)It will write 0 to the standard output.
I tried running the program and got the output 0
Can any one explain me the flow control in this case?

The for loop condition will never be true.
So, the loop will be skipped and the value of
x, 0, will be printed to the screen.
 
It's never done THAT before. Explain it to me tiny ad:
