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

>> - 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.

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.
