1. Pick the for loop which duplicates this while loop:

int x = 0;
while ( x < 500 )
{
  System.out.println( x );
  x = x + 5;
}

a.
for ( int x = 5; x <= 500; x+=5 )
  System.out.println( x );
b.
for ( int x = 0; x < 500; x+=5 )
  System.out.println( x );
c.
for ( float x = 0.0; x < 500.0; x += 5.0 )
  System.out.println( x );
d.
for ( int x = 500; x >= 0; x-=5 )
  System.out.println( x );

Correct Answer is:


2. Pick the for loop which duplicates this while loop:

double x = 0.0;
while ( x < 100.0 )
{
  System.out.println( x );
  x += 0.1;
}
a.
for ( int x = 0; x <= 1000; x += 1 )
  System.out.println( x );
b.
int x;
for ( x = 0.0; x < 100.0; x += 0.1 )
  System.out.println( x );
c.
double x;
for ( x = 0.0; x < 100.0; x += 0.1 )
  System.out.println( x );
d.
for ( double x = 0.0; x < 100.0;  )
{
  x += 0.1 ;
  System.out.println( x );
}

Correct Answer is:


3. Pick the for loop which duplicates this while loop:

int sum =  0 ;
int j   = -5 ;
while ( sum <= 350 )
{
  sum += j ;
  j   += 5 ;
}
a.
int sum =  0 ;
int j   = -5 ;

for ( ; sum <= 350; j += 5  )
{
  sum += j ;
}
b.
for ( int sum = 0; sum <= 350; j += 5  )
{
  sum += j ;
}
c.
for ( int j = 0; sum <= 350; j += 5  )
  sum += 5 ;
d.
int sum =  0 ;

for ( ; sum <= 350; )
{
  sum += j ;
  j   += 5 ;
}

4. What must the test be so that the following fragment prints out the integers -5 through and including 5?

for ( int j = -5;  ________ ; j++ )
{
  System.out.print( j + " " );
}
System.out.println( );
a. j<5 b. j<=5 c. j>5 d. j==5

Correct Answer is:


5. Fill the blank so that the following fragment prints out 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0,

for ( int j = 2; j <= 10; j++   )
  System.out.print( __________ + ", " );

System.out.println( );
a. j/10 b. j%10 c. (j+1.0)/10 d. j/10.0

Correct Answer is:


6. Fill the blank so that the following two loops are equivalent:

int sum   =  0;
for ( _______; count <= 25; count++    )
  sum += count;
int sum   =  0;
int count = 10;
while ( count <= 25 )
{
  sum += count;
  count++;
}
a. int count = 0 b. int count = 10
c. count = 0 d. int j = 10

Correct Answer is:
