the correct answer for the question mentioned below is line 20(D)
i compiled that program even i got the same answer
wat is confusing me is that even the line 14 is alsounreachable
while answering i had the confusion of choosing line 14 and line 20.

Given:
11. public class Test {
12. public void foo() {
13. assert false;
14. assert false;
15. }
16. public void bar(){
17. while(true){
18. assert false;
19. }
20. assert false;
21. }
22. }

Notice that line 20 is unreachable because of the while loop having true as its condition. It has nothing to do with assert statements. The compiler does not know if assertions are going to be enabled or disabled at runtime. So it must allow the two "assert false" statements on lines 13 and 14 to be compiled.
