Can anyone please explain:
On the first iteration of the loop,  why does the if statement  execute and print inflate-. ?  In order to execute the if statement, is it required that the condition of if statement to be true always ? Initially, balloonInflated was given false.
Thanks in advance.

Please start by indenting your code correctly. Then remind yourself about the execution of a do‑while loop. Follow RB's helpful suggestion, but do it twice. Insert a similar line after line 5. In RB's line 2, miss out the bang sign (!).
If that doesn't hellp, go through the code with pencil and paper; write down the value of your boolean after every line, and also which you think the next line to be executed will be.
