Algorithm Fragment

Hi - I have been given these algorithm fragments to examine and answer some questions:

put on hat ;
IF(weather is sunny)
put on sunglasses;
ENDIF
put on shoes;

What items of clothing will be put on a) when it is rainging and b) when it is sunny?

- I imagine that if it is rainging it would be the hat and shoes and if it is sunny it would be the hat, shoes and sunglasses.

Go to shop;
buy milk;
IF(today is Saturday)
buy weekly newspaper;
buy peanuts;
ENDIF
buy bread

- What items will be purchased on a) Thursday b) Saturday?

I think that Thursday would be milk and bread and Saturday would be mild, newspaper, peanuts and bread.

Please could somebody just have a quick look at this and tell me if I'm on the right tracks and if not, let me know where I'm going wrong so that I can understand this.

Thank you in advance

Correct. The if test is only true if it's sunny, so the if block is only executed is it's sunny.


>> I think that Thursday would be milk and bread and Saturday would be mild, newspaper, peanuts and bread.

Correct too.
