'10' is incorrect? am i missing some code and/or is 10 not the correct value?

Hey guys, can someone please explain to me as to why the answer is not '10' for the loop to run 10 times? Or is there an addition to the code that i missed aside from this? maybe both and 10 is wrong? lol thanks in advance!

The loop condition specifies when the loop will continue. So if you continue when the count is 10, the loop will actually run 11 times. Only then will the condition be false and the loop will stop.
