Previous quiz question.

At previous quiz there is a question about exiting the loop.

Which of the following statements will make the JavaScript interpreter exit a loop even when the loop condition is still true?

The correct answer is break; which is actually logical, but return will also break the loop, so that might be correct answer as well.

4 Answers

Return will exit the current subprogram or method, which is not the same thing as exiting the loop.

In some cases they may have same practical outcome (like causing a loop to terminate), but it is not exactly the same.

it's not, but it still might be confusing to somebody.

As I understand it, a return function can ONLY run when the condition becomes false.

A break function immediately terminates a program when it reaches its turn to function regardless if the condition statement was met or not.

Did you figure out the correct solution already ? I'm sorry for late response. I'm not sure what was the correct solution, but I suppose you might try something like

for  (var i  = 0; i <=10 ; i += 1 {
    document.write(i);
    break;
    // maybe break will need condition here
}

please try.

You are missing closing bracket for one: ....(var i = 0; i <=10 ; i += 1)....
