What will be the output of the C#.NET code snippet given below?

``````int num = 1, z = 5;

if (!(num <= 0))
Console.WriteLine( ++num + z++ + " " + ++z );
else
Console.WriteLine( --num + z-- + " " + --z ); ``````

 [A]. 5 6 [B]. 6 5 [C]. 6 6 [D]. 7 7

 Ravi said: (Aug 13, 2011) How values are get incremented ? I couldn't understand concept. Please explain steps.

 Roshni said: (Aug 20, 2011) n=1, z=5 ++n; n=2 & z++; z=5; Their sum is 7 then z is incremented by one z=6; Then again ++z means it is incremented by one z=7. Output : 7 7

 Shiva said: (Jan 9, 2012) Here num=1 then ++num means first increment valu then perform operation z++ means after operation result will increment by 1. after print 7,7. go to else part where num=2 and z=7 where -- means num decrement by 1and perform operation after operation z decrement by 1 and print.

 Tulasi Reddy said: (Jun 17, 2012) ++num + z++ + " " + ++z num=1, z=5 ++num= 1+1=2;//preincrement the num i.e.,increment by 1 z++= 5 because of post increment first it will print result after that it will increment by 1 so now z=6; ++z=6+1=7;//preincrement the z i.e.,increment by 1 So ++num + z++ + " " + ++z 2+5 7 7 7

 Sarala said: (Nov 13, 2012) !(1<=0) is true. ++num+z++ +" "+ ++z ++num=num+1=1+1=2 z++=,assainment,z=5,(2+5=7),after increment z+1= 5+1=6 ++z=(first inc), 6+1=7 So 2+5 7 7 7 Answer.

 Eshank said: (Aug 29, 2013) Here n=1 firstly and is get increased by 1 (++n) i.e. It become 2 and z=5 so on adding gives 7. And after that z is increased by 1. In next step z is previously increased by 1 and then printed so final value is 7 again. So answer is : 7 7.

 Sachin said: (Sep 6, 2013) The full flow is clear but from where does the execution of increment happens left or right?

 Raghvendra Singh Rajawat said: (Jan 31, 2014) If num=1, z=5 then ++num + z++ + " " + ++z. Now, num=2 and z=5(coz of post increment ) = 7. And, Value of z becomes 6. ++z = 7. 7 7.

 Pandurang Patil said: (Sep 11, 2015) C language executed increment from right to left. Then what about c#?

 Ahmed Shakhoun said: (Sep 18, 2019) Firstly! False = true so if statement is executed. After this num++ => num=1+num so num = 2 and z++ => z=z+1 so z increment but not is the current step. So in current result = 2+5. After this z=6 so num=6+1.
