### Java quiz 27: Multiple variables in a loop

Level: Normal

What is the output of the following code?

public class MyLoop { public static void main(String args[]) { int x; int y; for(x = 0, y = 3; x < y; x += 2, y++) { System.out.print(""); } System.out.print(x + "," + y); } }

### Answer explanation

- The statement for(x = 0, y = 3; x < y; x += 2, y++) indicates that the initial value of x = 0 and y = 3. As long as x is smaller than y the body of the loop is executed.
- x is smaller than y therefore, the body of the loop is exectued, the value of x is equal to x = x + 2 = 2, y = y + 1 = 3 + 1 = 4.
- By the next exectuion the value of x = x + 2 = 2 + 2 = 4, and y = y + 1 = 4 + 1 = 5.
- By the next execution the value of x = x + 2 = 4 + 2 = 6, and y = y + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6.
- Now, the the execution of the loop is terminated because y is no longer greater than x.

The correct answer is: d.
