ABox 3

BBox 10

CBox 2

DBox 7

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

ANSWR d)Box 7
Explanation :

In instruction 1, Box 10 is modified;
In instruciton 3, Box 2 is modified;
 and in instruction 5, Box 3 gets mofied;

Therefore out of given options only Box 7 remains unchanged.

Is the following statement True or False

Statement:
If the condition in Step C updates the value in Box 3 instead of Box 2, then the flow chart will enter into infinite loop

ATRUE

BFALSE

CCannot be determined

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Answer b)FALSE

Explanation.

even if Box 3 is updated instead of Box 2 in instruction C,


In instruction D, Number in Box 2 is compared with Box 7,


and the value is anyway greater, so the result is YES there and thus exiting and finishing the loop.

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

The answer is E.



The instruction 1 gets modified as long as the condition becomes false.



Step 1 defines (on the first occurance) and executes the instruction



Step 2 modifies the instruction



Step 3 does an evaluation



On each loop, the box 2, 4, 6, 8, 10... gets filled with 0. We need to limit it until 6 only.



When the last box count becomes 6, we need to execute the instruction. So, box 3 should not have 6. After executing instruction, it updates the box number to 8. Here, we need to break. 



So, box 3 should contain 8.

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Assume [Box 1]= 19



Instruction 1: 2[Box 2] 2[Box 2] = 4[Box 2​]



Instruction 2: [Box 2] 2 = [Box 4] // increase box num from 2 to 4.



Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 19 < [Box 2] 4  NO



 



Instruction 1: 4[Box 4] 4[Box 4] = 8[Box 4​]



Instruction 2: [Box 4] 2 = [Box 6]



Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 19 < [Box 4] 8  NO



 



Instruction 1: 6[Box 6] 6[Box 6] = 12[Box 6]



Instruction 2: [Box 6] 2 = [Box 8] 



Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 19 < [Box 6]12  NO



 



 



Instruction 1: 8[Box 8] 8[Box 8] = 16[Box 8​]



Instruction 2: [Box 8] 2 = [Box 10] 



Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 19 < [Box 8]16  NO



 



 



Instruction 1: 10[Box 10] 10[Box 10] = 20[Box 10​]



Instruction 2: [Box 10] 2 = [Box 12]



Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 19 < [Box 10] 20  YES



END



SO the ans should be 19//option A



// If you put [Box 1] = 9 then instruction end @ Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 9 < [Box 6]12  Yes



//  If you put [Box 1] = 11 then instruction end @ Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 11 < [Box 6]12  Yes



// If you put [Box 1] = 15 then instruction end @ Instruction 3: IS [Box 1] 15 < [Box 8]16  Yes



As per mention above we have to double 2,4,6,8,10 value...so loop never ends before updating upto



[Box 10] thats why our ans become 19
