INSTRUCTIONS: FOLLOWING EACH QUESTION HAVE FIVE POSSIBLE ANSWERS LABELLED A), B), C), D), E). TICK THE BEST CHOICE

The following program accepts a pair of 2 numbers from the user of system and totals them. Numbers are accepted in pair repeatedly and totaled, until grand total of all the pair of numbers accepted does not exceed 9.

Step 1 : Assign value 0 to x

Step 2 : Accept 1st number and assign to A

Step 3 : Accept 2nd number and assign to B

Step 4 : Add A and B assign to C

Step 5 : Add C to X

Step 6 : If X<10 go to Step 1

Step 7 : Stop.

The error in the above routine is

Step 6 should be If X<9 go to Step 1

Step 1 is redundant

Step 4 should be Add A & B and assign to X

Step 6 should read If x<10 go to Step 2

Step 1 should be Assign value 0 to A & B

The following program finds the greatest of the three numbers A, B and C and prints the result

Step 1 : If A>B assign A to X

Step 2 : If A>C assign A to X

Step 3 : If B>C assign B to X

Step 4 : Print X

The error in the above program:

It does not work in case C > A

It does not work in case B > A

It does not work in case C > B

It does not work in case A = B = C

All of the above

Study the following program and answer the following questions :

Step 1 : A = 0

Step 2 : B = 0

Step 3 : If B > 1

Step 4 : A = A + 1

Step 5 : B = B + 1

Step 6 : GOTO 7

Step 7 : END IF 9

Step 8 : B = B - 1

Step 9 : Stop.

What is the value of B at termination of program?

A) <1 B) 0 C) 1 D) 2 E) none of the these
