Answer2: The number of basic blocks can exceed the number of program statements when individual program statements contain internal control flow. There are several cases in which this occurs in Java, C, and C++: Short-circuit evaluation of conditions. For example, the single expression ( a < 10 || b < 10 || c < 10 || d < 10 ) is broken into four different basic blocks, with the last test (d < 10) executed only if all three of the prior tests evaluate to False. Conditional expressions like a < 10 ? 20 : 30, which might be nested to any depth, e.g., a < 10 ? (b < 10 ? 30 : 20) : 10). Complex statements like the head of a for loop, which contains a loop initialization expression, a loop continuation test, and a loop increment expression, all of which appear in different basic blocks. Grading Comments: All the correct and partially correct answers were categorized broadly into three

Unformatted text preview: types:- 1. Answers, which mentioned all the scenarios namely: Short-circuit operators, nested Conditional expressions and complex statements like for loop followed by an explanatory example got full credits of 5 marks. Considerable percentage of class has got this completely correct. 2. Answers, which captured all the scenarios but lacked an example, received 4 or 4.5 marks (based on explanation). The answers which gave an example but missed one scenario also fall in this category. 3. Answers, like single statement can be broken into several blocks or complex predicates can require division into separate basic blocks without any further details and examples have received 3 or 2 (based on explanation). Answers which mentioned that the number of basic blocks cannot exceed the number of program statements have not received any credit....
