Student in panic!
I need a program which simulates licquid in a tank. The user is supposed to write down a value and after that it´s supposed to be written a vertical line whith (I) and the column will be graduated 10, 20, 30 and 40. All this will be centered on the screen. I need two FOR loops, one for the column and one for the graduation.

If I am not mistaken, first the user needs to enter the water depth, so something like this will do the trick:

uses crt;
var WaterDepth,loop1,loop2:byte;
    writeln('Enter Water Depth (10, 20, 30, 40):  ');
    {Check to make sure WaterDepth within valid range}
  until WaterDepth in [10,20,30,40];


  {Loop to draw flask}
  for loop1:=1 to 9 do
    if (loop1 mod 2 = 0) then begin
      case loop1 of
        2:write('40 | |');
        4:write('30 | |');
        6:write('20 | |');
        8:write('10 | |');
    end else begin
      write('| |');


  {For the water, just make another case statement and in the case blocks (i.e. case WaterDepth of ... 10:begin for ... do) do a for loop to draw the water depth using gotoxy like I showed above.  Hope this all helps.  BTW, no guarentee on the code, never tested it out...}
