Select the correct answer.


Answer explanation

  1. The statement while (i < 9) means that execute the body of the loop as long as the variable i is smaller than 9.
  2. The initial value of i is equal to 1 and that is smaller than 9. Therefore the body of the loop is executed.
  3. The statement i += 2; increments the value of i by 2. So, i = 1 + 2 = 3. The statement System.out.print(i); writes 3 to the standard outpu.
  4. The value of i is now 3 and that is smaller than 9. Therefore the body of the loop is executed. The statement i += 2; increments the value of i by 2. So, i = 3 + 2 = 5 and 5 is written to the standard output.
  5. The value of i is now 5 and that is smaller than 9. Therefore the body of the loop is executed. The statement i += 2; increments the value of i by 2. So, i = 5 + 2 = 5 and 7 is written to the standard output.
  6. The value of i is now 7 and that is smaller than 9. Therefore the body of the loop is executed. The statement i += 2; increments the value of i by 2. So, i = 7 + 2 = 9 and 9 is written to the standard output.
  7. The value of i is now 9, but 9 is not smaller than 9 that is why the loop is terminated and the program writes 3579 to the standard output.
    The correct answer is: a.
