Answer 8

The pseudo-code fragment follows:

Syntax of a switch-case statement switch(expression){ case constant:sequence of optional statements break; //optionalcase constant: sequence of optional statementsbreak; //optional .. .default //optional sequence of optional statements}

An expression is tested against a series of unique integer constants. If a match is found, the sequence of optional statements associated with thematching constant is executed. Execution of statements continues until an optional break is encountered. When break is encountered, execution of the switch statement is terminated and control is passed to the next statement following the switch statement.

If no match is found and the optional default keyword along with a sequence of optional statements has been provided, those statements willbe executed.

The general syntax of the switch-case statement follows:

Syntax of a switch-case statement switch(expression){ case constant:sequence of optional statements break; //optionalcase constant: sequence of optional statementsbreak; //optional .. .default //optional sequence of optional statements}

Answer 6

The general syntax of the if-else statement is:

Syntax of an if-else statement if(conditional expression) statement or compound statement;else //optional statement or compound statement; //optional

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

The significance of an entry condition loop is that the conditional expression is tested before the statements in the loop are executed. If it testsfalse initially, the statements in the loop will not be executed.

Answer 3

True. Note however that including a return statement inside a while statement is probably considered poor programming practice.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
