According to me when k is incremented to 1 i.e it is greater than j(0)..so It will break the loop at the first instance ..
So how did 'c' get the value 10??

sonir,
the break statement only breaks the enclosing loop, the others are fine...
so the inner loop is broken every time k is bigger than j.
A good thing is too print the values of i,j and k
before the if statement.
You get:
i=0,j=0,k=0,c=1
i=0,j=0,k=1,c=2
i=0,j=1,k=0,c=3
i=0,j=1,k=1,c=4
i=0,j=1,k=2,c=5
i=1,j=0,k=0,c=6
i=1,j=0,k=1,c=7
i=1,j=1,k=0,c=8
i=1,j=1,k=1,c=9
i=1,j=1,k=2,c=10
Now you can see that all variables (i,j,k) are incrementing but as soon as k gets bigger than j the inner loop is broken...
