How can i solve nested loop?

In the quiz, i am trying to understand how the loop works, even in a interview they give you a piece of paper with a loop on it, and tell you to solve it just like the quiz but for a newbie its very difficult, so how should i decode/understand/breakdown the attached quiz code loop.?

I broke down the logic for the loop I believe you are referencing not long ago for someone else. Take a look and see if my explanation clears things up a bit!

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:

It does to some extend but how can we do it in mind, when you have a quiz or on piece of paper.

@Ammar Khan Honestly, I have no better advice than just to practice. And do the breakdowns on paper like I just did. I didn't do that with a compiler or any fancy thing. That was all done in my head and with logic. See if you can predict what's happening in a loop by writing it down step by step. That's about the best advice I can give :smile:
