Hi vardan gupta,

if you are talking about his quiz question. Then you are right.

<?php
// a = 1
$a = 1;
// wont pick (false)
if ($a > 1) {
    $a--;
    $a += 2;
// wont pick (false)
} elseif ($a < 1) {
    $a++;
// will pick (true)
} else {
    // 1 + 5 = 6
    $a += 5;
}
// 6 + 2
$a = $a + 2;
// 8
echo $a;
?>
