Select the correct answer.


Answer explanation

By else if conditional statements, once a condition returns true the rest of the
conditional statements will not be executed.
In this program the first condition if (a < b) returns true. The rest of the blocks will be ignored, regardless of
returning true or false.
The correct answer is: d.
