### A for loop is an example of a pretest loop

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A for loop is an example of a pretest loop because the condition is evaluated before the loop body is executed. In a for loop, the condition is checked initially, and if it is true, the loop body is executed. If the condition is false, the loop is not executed at all. This means that the loop may not run even once if the condition is false from the beginning. Therefore, a for loop falls under the category of pretest loops.

### If x is an int where x = 1, what will x be after the following loop terminates? while (x < 100) {      x *= 2; }

• A.

2

• B.

64

• C.

100

• D.

128

• E.

It's an infinite loop

D. 128
Explanation
The given loop multiplies the value of x by 2 repeatedly until x becomes greater than or equal to 100. Since the initial value of x is 1, it will be multiplied by 2 repeatedly until it reaches 128, which is the largest power of 2 that is less than 100. Therefore, the value of x after the loop terminates will be 128.

### If x is an int where x = 0, what will x be after the following loop terminates? while (x < 100) {      x *= 2; }

• A.

• B.

64

• C.

It's an infinite loop

E. It's an infinite loop

### Given that s is a String, what does the following loop do? int j = s.length( ); while (j > 0) {      System.out.print(s.charAt(j-1));     j -= 1; }

• A.

Prints s out backwards

• B.

Prints s out forwards

• C.

Prints s out backwards, skipping the last character

• D.

Prints s out backwards, skipping the first character

• E.

It's a run-time error because there is no character at s.charAt(j-1) for j = 0

A. Prints s out backwards
Explanation
The given loop iterates through the characters of the string "s" in reverse order. It starts from the last character of the string and prints each character one by one until it reaches the first character. Therefore, the loop prints the string "s" out backwards.

### The following nested loop structure will execute the inner most statement (x++) how many times? int j = 0, x = 0; while (j++ < 100) {      int k = 100;      while (k-- > 0) {            x++;      } }

• A.

100

• B.

200

• C.

10,000

• D.

20,000

• E.

100,000

C. 10,000
Explanation
The innermost statement (x++) will execute 10,000 times. This is because the outer while loop will iterate 100 times (j++ < 100), and for each iteration of the outer loop, the inner while loop will execute 100 times (k-- > 0). Therefore, the innermost statement will execute a total of 10,000 times.

### Consider the following code segment: for (int k = 0; k < 20; k = k + 2) {      if (k % 3 != 1) {            System.out.print(k + " ");     } } What is printed as a result of executing the code segment?

• A.

4 16

• B.

4 10 16

• C.

0 6 12 18

• D.

0 2 6 8 12 14 18

• E.

0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18

D. 0 2 6 8 12 14 18
Explanation
The code segment uses a for loop to iterate through values of k from 0 to 20 with a step size of 2. Inside the loop, there is an if statement that checks if k modulo 3 is not equal to 1. If this condition is true, the value of k is printed.

Starting from 0, the loop will iterate through the values: 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18.

Out of these values, only 0, 2, 6, 8, 12, 14, and 18 satisfy the condition in the if statement. Therefore, these values will be printed.

Hence, the output of the code segment will be: 0 2 6 8 12 14 18.
