I have come across following question from Dan's operator section tests:
________________________________________________________________________

What is the result of attempting to compile and run the above program?
a. Prints: false,false,false
b. Prints: false,false,true
c. Prints: false,true,false
d. Prints: false,true,true
e. Prints: true,false,false
f. Prints: true,false,true
g. Prints: true,true,false
h. Prints: true,true,true
i. Runtime error
j. Compiler error
k. None of the above
__________________________________________________________________________
Now, based on the operator precedence and operator evaluation rules, '&&' has got a higher precedence than '||'. So, according to me, these should be the order of steps executed at runtime:
[LIST]

Please refer to my other thread. The question is incomplete here. I think that it got posted by mistake.
Thanks,
Nidhi.

I thought it will be "false, true, true"too... but I compile and run the code and it's true, false, false.
